Description

This fortress was only built at the end of Muslim period in the 14C and was strategically vital to defend against Castillian troops. Two towers stand out against its walls: the Torre del Homenaje, the keep, also known as the "Reloj de Papabellotas", nowadays crowned by a Renaissance bell tower; and the quadrangular Torre Blanca. From here, enjoy the views of the rooftops of Antequera and the Peña de los Enamorados. Gardens have been laid out inside the ramparts.
