These two buildings, the palace and church, represent one of the key elements of the historic mediaeval town of Sos del Rey Católico.

Both are located on high ground in the southernmost part of the mediaeval town centre of Sos.
The palace of Sada was the birthplace of Ferdinand II of Aragon, 'the Catholic', from whom the town takes its name. It was built in the 15th century in the Gothic style, and reformed in the 16th-17th centuries. Its façade has doors with voussoir arches and crests, and is topped by battlements. The courtyard, remains of the defensive walls and a fortified tower can still be seen today. It is today the site of the Fernando II de Aragon Visitor Centre.
The church of San Martín de Tours was the private chapel of the original castle on which the Sada Palace was built. It is proto-Gothic in style (13th century), with a rectangular nave and apse and wooden ceilings over pointed arches. Various Gothic wall paintings are preserved in the apse.
