Medieval Castle Butrón - Architecture Gatika, Spain

Newer Older

Castle Butrón is a medieval building located in Gatica (Province of Biscay, Spain). It is surrounded by forest and towns that are far little among themselves, as Algorta, Plencia, Munguia, and Lauquíniz Maruri.

The building's origins date back to medieval times, although its present appearance is a deep renovation, completed in the nineteenth century by the Marquis of Cubas.

Based on the foundation and part of the cylindrical towers, the rest was built in the style Germanic, with large dose of fantasy, far from the castle itself prototype of the region. To some extent, it has parallels with the nineteenth-century Bavarian castle. The chateau was designed more as a hobby and visual appeal for an apartment house, in fact, it is very uncomfortable as housing, as the towers do not have much usable space and some rooms are connected by walkways and outdoor escalators.

The building is surrounded by a lush park with palm trees and exotic species. The entire ensemble was adapted for a time as catering establishment with medieval atmosphere shows. Later it was seized and auctioned off.

Now depends on the Vizcaya Provincial Council, under the protection of the general declaration of the Decree of April 22, 1949, and Law 16/1985 on Spanish Historical Heritage.

For those who speaks Spanish, I only found the description in Spain on Wikipedia

Die Burg Butrón ist ein mittelalterliches Gebäude gelegen in der Gemeinde Gatika (Provinz Bizkaia, Spanien). Sie wird von Wald und von Städten wie Algorta, Plencia, Munguia und Lauquíniz Maruri umgeben.

Die Ursprünge des Schloss stammen aus dem Mittelalter. Ihr heutiges Aussehen jedoch erfuhr sie durch eine sehr tiefgreifende Umgestaltung im neunzehnten Jahrhundert von den Markgrafen von Cubas.

Basierend auf dem Fundament und ein Teil der zylindrischen Türme wurde der Rest im germanischen Stil erbaut - mit einer großen Portion Phantasie und weit entfernt von den Burgen der Region. In gewisser Weise hat das Schloss Parallelen mit bayerischen Schlössern aus dem neunzehnten Jahrhundert.

Das Gebäude war ursprünglich als Wohnhaus entworfen, mehr als Hobby und visueller Appell. Als Gebäude in der Tat nicht sehr angenehm, da die Türme nicht viel Nutzfläche bieten.
Die Burg ist von einem üppigen Park mit Palmen und exotischen Pflanzen umgeben.
