Coca Castle is one of the best exponents of Gothic-Mudejar Spanish architecture and it is declared a National Monument. It is one of the few fortresses of Spain that does not sit on a hill, but on plain land, surrounded by a broad, deep moat.
The castle is made mainly of brick, used both as raw material and as a decorative element. The limestone appears in the loopholes, the columns of the courtyard, and other decorative elements.
In 1958, parts of the castle rooms became the headquarters of the Forest Training School.
This castle of Coca (at least its exteriors) was chosen by Hollywood filmmakers to sub for the Camelot castle of King Arthur in the 1967 film of the musical CAMELOT.
