Castle of the 14th century, reformed during the 15th and 16th centuries. It has a pentagonal ground plan and a large Tower of Homage. Inside, it has a Cereal Museum.

King Pedro I, the Cruel, locked his wife Blanca de Borbón in the castle. Juan II and Enrique IV possessed it, the latter handed it to don Álvaro de Zúñiga; between 1476 and 1480, Zúñiga and the Catholic Monarchs negotiated a compesation for Arévalo and, in the ends, the village was taken over by the Crown. Subsequently it became a state prison.
