Cala Castle

The Cala Castle is located on a hill near the town center and is accessed from the A-434 as it passes through Cala, in the province of Huelva, Andalusia.

It is believed that it was built in the same historical period and following the same construction system as castles such as Encinasola and Cumbres de San Bartolomé.

Rectangular Military building, made of masonry with lime mortar. It has four square towers, and three semicircular ones. One of its square towers, has two rectangular windows that would have been used originally for the control of the territory and visual communication with the Castle of Real de la Jara. In the tower there is also an underground tank for the storage of food. Also significant are the main entrance as a square tower with its pointed outer arch of ashlar, and the postem, with similar characteristics.

Its construction must have taken place between the late thirteenth and mid-fourteenth centuries, immersed in the politics of control and management of the territory, that after the conquest must have been accomplished by the council of the city of Seville.
