From what was a huge and luxurious castle-palace, built by Juan Alonso de Pimentel, Count of Benavente, when King Henry III gave him the villa with its old castle, just a beautiful and original tower remains, which was built at the beginning of the XVI century

The shields on the outside of the tower and the pendentives of the inner dome represent Pimentel arms, arms that also appear in Benavente Hospital and in the courtyard of the Palace of the Counts of Valladolid. The tower survived the fire in the early XIX, being restored to 1953 and currently hosts a National Tourism Parador.
