Gothic noble fortress, built in the 15th century by the descendants to Pedro García Herrera, major-general of Castile and nephew of the bishop of Palencia Sancho de Rojas, founder of the Manor of Ampudia.

The building is shaped as a trapezoid, with four square turrets in the corners and the front is symmetrical. Today the castle houses a collection of art objects and antiques.

Don Pedro de Ayala, the Count of Salvatierra, was one of the owners of the castle. He fought in favour of the comunera cause in the battle of Ampudia, which confronted the followers of the emperor and the troops of the Acuña Bishop.
