It is located in the site that names it: ‘Monte El Viejo’, it consists of a central tower to which two square rooms of lower height are attached. It is a gift of King Alfonso VIII to the city. Today it is kept in good condition, being used as a recreation area. Its door has a semicircular arch formed by voussoirs, and on it there is a machicolated balcony with defensive uses, from which the three brackets holding it remain.

It was built with limestone; its purpose was to provide shelter to those who keep the countryside, ensuring their safety which was poor.
