This exhibition includes twenty-five castles, towers and watchtowers from the Islamic period which are preserved in the mountains, hill-sides and plains of the Marina Alta. This is a rich and little-known heritage, represented by a number of defensive structures that began to be built after the Muslim conquest of Spain in the eighth century, but especially during the final centuries of Islamic rule.
