Nothing remains of the former Muslim fortress of the 10th century. The building had other walls, possibly dating from the 12th century.It has two enclosures: the interior one dates from the 15th century and was built by the Tovar family (Luis Tovar and his wife María de Guzmán), it has a Tower of Homag; and the exterior enclosure was built in the 16th century with thick walls flanked by cylindrical turrets.

The 16th-century artillery fortress was conceived as a trapezoidal structure with four cubes. The building is completed with high walls that once surrounded the whole village and were he first defensive barrier against outside attacks. When the muslim threat disappeared, then the Tovar family took over, building a castle in the 15th century, and founding the villages collegiate church.
