The Nicio Castle is located in the Padron Alto, near the Castor and the Padrón rivers, in the Andalusian municipality of Estepona, Málaga.

The Nicio Castle part of a primitive Bastulo village would be rebuilt by the Romans and later by the Arabs, at the Taifa time.

The castle is a fortress from the Taifa period, has the arrogant character that characterizes all of this coast, Almería and Granada, which were the last holdouts who gave to Christianity. Only a few remains of the ancient walls remain, on which are erected houses of the population.

    Hola muy buenas. Soy vecino de Estepona y la verdad que el estado de la fortaleza es de pena, e estado varias veces allí y me parece un sitio precioso pero mi padre me contó que antes de que vinieran los cristianos los árabes que vivian y protegían el lugar enterraron la piel de un toro llena de oro solo es uno historia para niños estaría bien que se preocuparan y la arreglaran es una pena que se siga deteriorando y desaparezca. gracias. Un saludo
