Turón Castle – Ardales
The Turón Castle is a medieval military fortress located on the limestone cliffs that formed an abyss on the left bank of the Turón River, built during the war between the Kingdoms of Granada and Seville.
The Turón fortress was the main military support for the Peña de Ardales during the fight against the advance by the Castillian organized from the Teba Castle.
The highest point of the mountain was fortified with large walls and numerous towers and, on the east side, the one that falls to peak on the river, was not made by unnecessary. It conserves the barbican, the main walls, the towers and a cistern. On its north face, which is guarded by Ardales, a fortress was built with a large tower that would serve as residence for the military leaders.
