Miguelturra is a municipality in the province of Ciudad Real, Castile-La Mancha, Spain. It has a population of 13,986.

History[edit]

During the late Middle Ages, Miguelturra was a stronghold of the Order of Calatrava; the order's feudal authority of the town frequently quarrelled with the royal ones in the nearby Ciudad Real. In the 14th century troops from the latter stormed Miguelturra in seven occasions.

Currently Miguelturra is separate from Ciudad Real by just 500 meters.
