Castle of Loarre - Castillo de Loarre, 11th cent 3D Model
The Romanesque Castle and Abbey of Loarre is located in Huesca, North of Spain. The fortress dates from 1020, when King Sancho Garcés III of Pamplona, following his expansion efforts against the Muslim Taifa of Zaragoza, built the main parts of the castle in a strategic spot that allowed him to threat the Muslim lands and city of Huesca, also guaranteeing protection and stability to his own lands. It was in 1071 when a second major construction stage was undertaken by Sancho Ramirez, King of Aragon and Pamplona, in the main body of the castle, adding new military and religious buildings. It was not until the 13th century when the outermost walls and towers were erected, forming the present layout. As the Reconquista War wagged south with Muslim Taifas falling under the Christian Kingdoms pressure, the role of the castle of Loarre diminished but remained as a centre of feudal and religious power.
