Tourism of castles and fortress: the Templars Route in Spain

Jose Manuel Morales Gajete, Ricardo David Hernández Rojas, Genoveva Dancausa Millán


The Middle Ages attracts a growing number of tourists, interested in knowing those temples, churches, bridges, cathedrals, castles and safeguards that have survived over the centuries. One of the centers of attraction and growing interest is the so-called Temple Order, which disappeared in the 14th century, and in particular the enclaves in which said organization was established. The objective of this work is to analyze and channel a possible route whose main motivation is to follow the footsteps of the Templars in the Iberian Peninsula, specifically from León, one of its main squares, to Córdoba, capital of Al-Andalus and symbol of power Muslim in his time. The work is developed through different dwellings where these enigmatic gentlemen left their symbolism engraved, and that today they form an important heritage for Spain. The analysis shows how the route of the Templars through Spain can become the object of that type of tourist who seeks to unite the historical enigmas with heritage. The order of the Temple represents from the tourist point of view the union of the heritage with facts in singular places of excess attraction for the visitor.
