The military barracks.

La Almudaina, now joined to the Castle, was originally the administrative and military seat of the Moorish 'wali' protector.

It has an elongated layout with nine quadrangular towers. Various archaeological excavations have revealed remains of buildings from the 12th and 13th centuries, although the current buildings date from the 16th century (the Ses Voltes building, the gate of which is crowned with the shields of the Crown of Aragón and the Governor Alonso de Zanoguera) and the 18th century (the infantry battalion barracks around the bailey). Also from the 18th century, la Almudaina was joined to the Castle after the section of wall and the tower that had existed between both buildings were demolished. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the building underwent further restructuring (kitchens, a gym, etc.). Philip II ordered the fortress to be built in the 16th century. In its first phase, it was formed by six bastions. The most important of them are named San Jorge and Santiago. Later, works were carried out by Antonio Jaime. The Santa Lucía bastion was built during the third phase of construction, and the castle and citadel were completed in last phase, with Alfonso Rubián as the architect.
