The Castle Cemetery has blunted cylindrical towers and an underground cistern in the centre of the facility.
While it appears Roman, the fortress has Moorish architectural components, creating discrepancies to its exact roots.
You can see a cross from 1776 on the outside of the castle.
Its surroundings are home to the traditional Moors and Christians festival during the last week of August.

How to get here
The two main routes to this village from the Costa del Sol start from the AP-7 expressway or the old N-340 highway. From either you can take the A-376 at San Pedro de Alcántara in the direction of Ronda, and before arriving at that city turning onto the A-369, which after passing through Atajate leads to Benadalid. You can also leave the AP-7 or the N-340 at Manilva, get onto the A-377 in the direction of Ronda, and arrive at Benadalid after passing through Gaucín and Algatocín.
