Grand Prior’s palatial ensemble

The most important vestiges of Alcázar’s medieval past are located in the surroundings of the Santa María neighborhood. In 935 Alcazar (Qasr Banu Atiyya, in Arabic) is part of the Taifa of Toledo. After the conquest of the fields of La Mancha, the Christian kings granted lands and privileges to the Military Orders to take charge of the repopulation and Christianization of the frontier area. The old Arab citadel will be the embryo of the village of San Juan. This city had a walled enclosure of which only the tower of the Grand Prior, the “cubillo”, the Palace Chapel and the house of the Governor’s Office remain.
