The fortress has rectangular turrets. Its main door, topped with a horseshoe arch framed by the alfiz, makes the castle one of the most representative Islamic fortresses.On the western side stood the citadel, with a water reservoir of more than 100,000 litres.

The wall that separated it from the rest of the structure was probably erected in the 14th century. The Torre de Trastámara was built around the same time. During the first years of the Reconquista (Christian Reconquest), a fortress was built on the site of a previous building, probably a vernacular edifice with Visigothic remains. This fortress was successively attacked by the Christians and the Muslims, and subsequently enlarged and reformed.
