This castle rises up above one of the side of the mountain, which is a symbol of Alora. There are only two towers, left today of this castle which was probably built during the Visigot period and expanded at a later date by the Arabs.
Nowadays what can be seen is the castle’s chapel-cemetery. The main chapel with its Gothic or crossed vault is the only remaining evidence of what was once theTorres parish church. The rest is completely destroyed and used as a cemetery.
Used for over two hundred years as a cemetery, it was transferred to a new area of the municipality a few years ago. In February 2009, after eleven years of procedures for closure of the cemetery, the City initiated the demolition of the niches that hosts the site.
