Castillo de Jimena (Castle of Jimena) is the most significant monument of the town. They place their construction in the thirteenth century, forming part of a defensive system that protected the province from the north of the Sierra de Cádiz to the Strait of Gibraltar.
The fortress was protected by a wall that closed the entire enclosure and where several separate towers were arranged at regular intervals. The cobbled access road is probably of Roman origin, which means that this place was already occupied at that time.
Nowadays, the canvases of crenellated walls, reservoirs, the tribute tower and the albarrana tower still remain.
