The oldest part preserved is the remains of the wall hugging the perimeter of the hillock. A moat and a tower, the centre of today's structure, were built on the side overlooking the moorland. The tower was reinforced in the 15th century. Different structures were added later on.

There were some serious foundation problems in the past. Pedro de Zúñiga, the second Count of Miranda del Castañar, was responsible for the main works carried out in the castle. His coat of arms, Zuñiga y Avellaneda, and that of his wife, Catalina de Velasco y Mendoza, can be seen in the castle.

Legend has it that Alfonso XI killed one of the mayor's squires because he refused to lodge him when he was hunting in the area.
