The moat

This gives you a sense of the scale of the castle. Orlando took us inside this "basement", which covered the entire square footage of the castle. There were "wine caves", cavernous arched brick ceilings, a giant kitchen, an old olive press, wells, and a huge space that was being set up for 2 weddings from the area over the weekend. We were there on the day of one of them. We left before it bagan at 11:00am. When we returned at about 6pm, it was still going on. We saw a tired bride and groom leaving and were told by Orlando that they were going to take a rest, since the party would be regrouping and continuing into the night.
