The artillery barrier that surrounds the castle was built in the early 16th century. Its construction may be attributed to the Castilian king Enrique II. There was a previous castle in this strategic post between Portugal and Castile.

Ciudad Rodrigo, like Zamora, had been in favour of king Pedro and after his death asked king Enrique for help. The Portuguese king handed Ciudad Rodrigo to Enrique II, who immediately started to rebuild it. It remains a Parador to this day.
