Castalla’s castle Posted June 2, 2013


Though of Arabic origin, it owes his current structure to the medieval centuries. In the 16th century was added the Tower Grossa to monitor the incursions of pirates from the sea Mediterranean.

Located in the high of a hill that dominates the villa, the disposition of his walls adapts to the structure of the area. Constructed basically in masonry, it possesses linens of wall with cylindrical crenellated buckets. In his interior, a wide court of weapon, with remains of diverse dependences (stands out an Arabic cistern of the centuries XII-XIII), separates both most important buildings placed to every end.
In one, the palace, lordly residence of the centuries XIV-XV, conceived as a small castle inside the castle. In other one, the Tower Grossa, constructed in 1579 to monitor the possible incursions of Berber pirates from the littoral of the Mediterranean towards the interior of the region. Done based on chairs, it is clear of three plants that they finish off in a terrace with battlements.
