Unfortunately the castle is ruined so badly there's not much to see these day. Parts of the castle are also integrated to other buildings. Takes you a total of five minutes to see the exterior.

11th century Arabic castle walls blends in with the new architecture of the town giving the area an interesting character. The castle originally had ten towers and held out against the Catholic monarchs until 1485.

Good to see some of the historic ruins if the castle still in place. Shame there isn't a little more to do with regards to castle of history of he area here. Also a shame that the castle has been converted into residential premises and repaired in a modern style.
