The S. Jorge Castle – National Monument integrates the noble zone of the old medieval citadel, constituted by the castle, the vestiges of the old royal palace and part of a residential area for elites.
The fortification, built by the Muslims in the middle of the eleventh century, was the last stronghold of defense for the elites who lived in the citadel: the Moorish governor, whose palace was nearby, and the elites of the city administration, whose houses are still visible today in the Archaeological Site.
