Stunning 8th-century fortress, which has undergone considerable alterations and restoration over the centuries. It has a 60m2 rectangular base and it is flanked by two towers and a Mudéjar-style chapel, which is situated in the highest part of the castle-palace. This was the venue for Francisco de Quevedo’s wedding. As for the chapel, its most outstanding features are its Mudejar style plasterwork, the 16th-century triptych and the art in clay pieces.

According to El Cantar de Mío Cid, El Cid and his men pitched their camp at a place in between Ariza and Cetina and spent the night there on the fifteenth day of exile: the people from these two towns feared an attack from Rodrigo, so that they paid a tribute.

Visits: Private property.
