Muslim Wall


On the Muslim walls, several spots of mural painting with semicircular towers are conserved, with crenellated finish and sentry post. In two outer sections is the old Xúquer Riverbed, a natural pit in one section with a garden and in the other section, a water sheet. The inner enclosure contains the parade ground, which currently includes a garden.
