Belmonte

Commissioned by Don Juan Manuel in 1323 on a former Visigoth construction, it was the birthplace in 1419 of Don Juan Pacheco, first Marquis of Villena, who ordered the construction of the current Castillo De Belmonte.

The II Marquis de Villena, Don Diego López Pacheco, turned the building into a monastery in 1499, and therefore moved the Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena from Villa de la Alberca to Belmonte, where the palace remained until 1960.

Influenced by this historical facts, the Palacio Del Infante Don Juan Manuel Hotel Spa was born in Belmonte, Cuenca.
