Murallas de Arjona

Murallas de Arjona

The walls of Arjona date from the Almohad period. They originally had about 22 towers, as well as too distinct additional stone towers, one of which was octagonal. The fortress or main fortified enclosure is located at one end of the hill’s plateau. Those who built the castle took advantage of the abundant materials from previous constructions which were strewn across that area. What was the site of the fortress is today occupied by the Iglesia de Santa María and the Santuario de las Santas Reliquias, built with the stones of the towers of the old enclosure. Declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 1985. Located in Paseo de los Mártires.
