At the top of the mountain is the imposing fortress of Cullera Castle. Built by the Cordovan state in the 9th century for the strategic control of natural resources, communication routes and borders, it is configured by the citadel and two albacaras that fulfilled the functions of sheltering the troops, cavalry, cattle and the population itself at times siege.

Likewise, a set of towers linked the different sections of walls that surrounded the Castle: the Reina Mora or Santa Ana Tower, the Miranda Tower, the Racó de San Antonio Tower, the Desmochada Tower and the Octagonal Tower. Currently it is possible to visit this walled complex starting from the Torre de la Reina Mora or Santa Ana, and following a path that runs along the old walled perimeter.

Cullera Castle is the result of numerous renovations, reconstructions and reforms carried out during more than a thousand years of history. From the Middle Ages to the Carlist Wars, Cullera Castle has witnessed numerous and relevant historical events.

Declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, it is one of the most visited monuments after its recovery and enhancement.
