This pano shows the ruins of the Castillo del Rio (River Castle) in Aspe. This construction, whose origins date back to the Arabic Almoravid dynasty in the XII century, is located over a hill crossed by the Tarafa and Vinalopo rivers in Southern Spain.
This fortified site is thought to be the first settlement of the town of Aspe. Currently in ruins, you can still appreciate the archaeological importance of this place which is surrounded by 12 turrets and a wall made of masonry and a mix of clay and rolling stones.
As a side note it is worth mentioning that one of the only two ploughs of Arabic origin uncovered in Spain was found on this site (this is currently exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Alicante).
You may also notice that not only the Castle is in ruins, but also the wild prickly pears grown all around the base and that have sadly been affected by a plague that is killing these cactus.
