It has Moorish origins and has undergone many transformations. Inside you can see the Santísima Vera Cruz de Caravaca. The Vera Cruz Sanctuary is outstanding for its Baroque façade, added in the 18th century and made from local marble. It is located within the walled enclosure of the Real Alcázar, which served as a fortress for the Temple and Santiago Orders alike. It now has 14 towers of different shapes and sizes.
