Not so much a castle but an ornate 20th century folly, which was originally the home of local historian and writer, Vicente Sanchez Araña. Today, it serves primarily as an archaeological museum.
Located just off the entrance to the town, you can’t miss this impressive building for its grey stone turrets. Within its walls, you will find 16 rooms displaying various aboriginal artefacts and water colour paintings by local artists.
Make sure to venture outside into the adjacent garden which is adorned by various colourful flora including fruit trees.
