Butrón Castle

The castle of Butron is a building of the XV. century that belonged to the Butron family. It is located in the village of Gatika (Bizkaia) and its origins date back to the middle ages. At first, it was a tower-house, but then it was totally remodelated with Bavarian style. The cylindrical towers and the base foundations where refurbished in the XIX. century.

The castle has 2,400 metre squared and its located in a woodland of more than 35,000 metre squared. The building has a main floor, mezzanine, five floors, and four fortified towers, and the walls have around four metres of thickness. Inside the castle there are some halls, a chaple, the army path, a 200 metre squared dining room , a warehouse, a water well…..etc.

Nowadays the building it´s sorrounded by a forest with many exhotic trees and plants, because some decades ago, the “Diputacion of Bizkaia” remodelated the place to have a turistic use. Butron castle belongs to  INBISA corporation, but they have put it into sale. The company have show that ” they are only going to priorizate those offer which had an atractive plan of conservation of this property unique in Spain”

**There are not many sources or cites because it is a turistic and historical place**
