Jumilla Castle, locally known as Castillo de Jumilla.
The site of Jumilla Castle has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. It was fortified by Iberians and Romans. Later the area was conquered by the Muslims during 713, they built here a castle called Yumilla on the ancient Roman and Iberian remains.
During 1241 Jumilla Castle was conquered by troops of Ferdinand III of Castile. Around 1290 the area passed to the Kingdom of Aragon. During 1357 the castle was taken by Ferdinand of Aragon, who had sided with Peter of Castile. Pretty soon later, Ferdinand again pledged his obedience to his brother, Peter IV of Aragon. Thus the castle returned to the Aragonese Crown. During 1358 the castle was again taken for the Castilian crown by Fadrique Alonso, Lord of Haro and Master of the Order of Santiago.
During 1462 the castle was rebuilt into the fortress we see today by Juan Pacheco, Marquess of Villena and Master of the Order of Santiago.
