Castillo de Santa Catalina

Interesting
The large shape of the former Arab fortress, which was transformed by St Ferdinand III, stands at the top of St Catherine's Hill. This was the original point of the ramparts that surrounded the town but of which only the Angel's Gate and the arches of San Lorenzo and Comfort remain. Of the castle itself, only an interesting chapel dedicated to St Catherine and a keep that provides spectacular views over the Sierra de Jabalcuz and olive groves remain.
