The castle consists basically of one articulated front with projections, flanked by turrets overshadowing the tower of homage, with round turrets in the Gales and fronts.

This castle held the Coyanza Council in 1050; the old Coyanza was populated and fortified by Fernando II of León in the second half of the 12th century. The main section of the castle has been preserved, and was built by Juan de Acuña and his wife Teresa Enríquez.
