There are nice remains of a Muslim castle in ruins. This castle was built, together with the fortresses of Olocau or Náquera (there are no remains), on the 8th century to secure the northern part of Valencia. It became one of the most important fortresses of the Arab region. Towards the end of 1094 or the beginning of 1095, El Cid, who had already conquered Olocau, took this castle.

This is a walled enclosure constructed on an irregular base, whose surface has 600 square metres. It has several crenellated walls, a tank and two towers. Visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the coast and the orchards in the Valencia region from the castle.
