Cultural visit to the Castle of Bury Al-Hamman, it is one of the best preserved castles of its architectural typology in mud, whose impossibility of reusing materials justifies that it has preserved its original walled enclosure almost intact.



It stands on Cerro del Cueto, where human presence is manifested prior to the construction of the castle (Copper Age), as is attested in the archaeological site located inside the walled enclosure. The Castle was built in the Almohad period linked to the defenses raised in the Alto Guadalquivir prior to the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa (year 1212).
