The castle has a barrier with large towers and barrel vaulted rooms and a peculiar yard at the entrance. The structure has a regular, square ground floor. The multi-storey Tower of Homage, commonly known as 'Macho', is protected by a drawbridge. It was built in the 15th century as a castle-palace by the fourth Count of Benavente, Don Rodrigo Alonso Pimentel, a member of the powerful Castilian nobility and the owner of many castles.

En su interior se encuentra el Centro de las Fortificaciones, donde el visitante conoce de forma amena la historia del castillo y de la villa; y en la Casa del Gobernador el Ecomuseo de Sanabria, Carballeda, Valles del Tera, Villafáfila y Parque de Montesinho, que recrea el viaje que siglos atrás hicieron los Pimentel, condes de Benavente, desde Portugal hasta Sanabria.
