Located in Rota, the Luna castle dates from the 13th century and was built under control of "Guzmán the Good" upon a fortified convent of ribat or Muslim origin, in the 11th century. It is rectangular with five crenelated towers, and its interior is structured around a central courtyard.

Property of the Dukes of Arcos, the Ponce de León used the castle as a residence and there is evidence that the Catholic Monarchs visited the city and stayed there.

The Luna Castle is a symbol in itself for citizens of Rota, Cadiz, and proof of this is its presence on the coat of arms of the village. It has housed a hospital and a school, and is currently the location of the City Hall of Rota.
