Today, only the building remains standing, giving the place the looks of an old Medieval castle that, looking onto the sea, expects the arrival of friends and foes from other worlds.
Hundreds of tourists visit the ruins everyday turning this place into one of the main tourist attractions in the area. No wonder tourists from all over the world choose the ruins and La Portada Natural Monument as the two most outstanding sites to portray in a photograph.
As the vultures hover in the air and nest in its old walls, the ruins hide part of a history that will be in everyone’s mouth soon.
The construction of an international casino in its surroundings will be the reason for the ruins to be proudly recycled so that thousands of fans from all over the world come along to tempt their luck. An interesting way of progress that will rescue a historical-cultural building that was the protagonist of the entire region in its years of glory from oblivion and erosion. And it will soon be glorious again. The die is cast, once more.
