The Castell de Ferro Castle is located in the town of th same name, belonging to the Andalusian municipality of Gualchos, in the province of Granada. To its righ or west it has the Estancia Watchtower and on the left the Cambriles Watchtower.

This fortress was built due to the good beach and wharf offerre by the area and because it is the gateway to the Alpujarras. Its origin can be diverse, Roman or Phoenician, although it can be said that it was part of the defense of the Nasrid kingdom an its construction reveals it.
