Monumental set of medieval roots. One big crag surrounded by the Júcar was used by the Arabs for to raise in him a powerful and inaccessible fortitude, surrounded for three walls lines. Between them and to the feet of the castle the population developed. Then, the Christians used this one bastion as center of repopulation of the whole region. In castle resided, for the long time the Infante don Juan Manuel, happening then to be the capital of the Marquisate of Villena, which it extended up to the Levantine coast and murciana. Of his importance past there gives idea the fact of having had five parishes, four of which still remain in foot. Declared Historical Set.
