The Castle of Lorca is an ancient medieval fortress from the 11th to the 13th centuries.
It was used over time to defend the border between the kingdoms of Murcia and Granada.
It was in use until well into the 16th century.
During the War of Independence (1808-1814) it was again used as a place of refuge and defence.
Today it hosts a recreation and exhibition of the Middle Ages.
Here you can visit the towers, cisterns and the archaeological remains of the Synagogue from the 15th century.
