about Sagunto Castle
Sagunto Castle (Castillo de Sagunto) is a vast ruin spread over a kilometre and overlooking the town.
The most impressive parts of Sagunto Castle date back to around the eighth century and were built by the Moors as an imposing fortress. However, the site also shows signs of previous inhabitants of Sagunto, namely the Iberians and the Romans.
In particular, the site of Sagunto Castle houses the remains of a Roman forum.
