Together with the Guadaíra River, the Alcalá de Guadaíra Castle is probably one of the distinguishing features which best defines the city of Alcalá de Guadaíra. It is the historical root of the town which, starting from its interior, has extended over the centuries until reaching the current boundaries of the city centre.

The Castle is located on a promontory which is high enough to completely dominate the surroundings, in the same place as previous human settlement was to be found in the Bronze Age.

It was built during the times of Muslim domination, in the 11th and 12th centuries, although after the Reconquest by Ferdinand III is when it acquired its definitive layout. Important development was still taking place right up to the late 15th and early 16th century.

In 1924 it was declared a Monument of Historical and Artistic Interest, and in 1985 it was classified as a Place of Cultural Interest.
