“Impressive Castle”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

The Cullera Castle is located on top of Cullera Mountain, which has a height of 225 meters and dominates the city. The Moors constructed it before the 10th century to control the coastline and the estuary of the Jucar River. In the 13th century, King Jaime I conquered Cullera and ordered a new castle built over the ruins of the Moorish castle. The new castle was given to the Order of the Knights Hospitallers. This castle was later restored by King Pedro IV, el Ceremonioso. During the Spanish War of Independence against the French forces of Napoleon, the castle was damaged. Today the castle has five towers and two fortified areas. The castle has been named as a Heritage of Cultural Interest. Beside the castle is the Mirador del Castillo, which has wonderful views of the coastline and the estuary of the Jucar River.
