If we speak of Medinaceli we should think in a strategic place, crossroad and high place. It was a defensive place since Roman times. Between the Valley of the Ebro and Duero, a natural defense, it is together with its walls in a protected place. It is a land with agricultural, livestock and salt resources, famous for its salt mines.

It is a town known for its castle and its palace too. You can enjoy from the first in the end of its Roman wall, reconstructed on the first Arab citadel of the old neighborhood. It is a defense of square floor with circular towers in three of its corners and the tower keep in the fourth. Its walls do not possess any window or hollow, only the gate opening the wall.
