Castle Palace of the Order of St. John

Next to the parish church of Santa Margarita, the remains of the castle are preserved. On the main façade there is still a Gothic pointed access arch with a lowered profile towards the interior. Of the interior rooms there are only remains of masonry and adobe walls, with pointed arches, fragments of stairs, etc. The oven that is preserved today on the other side of the street was originally part of the castle.

The main core of the castle is also the oldest part and belongs to the period of occupation of these lands by the order of the Temple, from the middle of the 13th century. It was renovated several times during the centuries of San Juan’s rule and was finally converted into a dwelling. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, its layout and appearance changed definitively, and it was finally demolished in the 1950s.
