This is a wonderful example of Gothic architecture. The castle has been renovated not long ago, and so now it is ready to appear in front of tourists in all its glory.
An old Arabic Church named Palacio Real de La Almudaina is located nearby. Today the palace hosts meetings of the government and large events. It would be a mistake to assume that the central part of the city is not so remarkable.
