The palace is built on foundation walls of a tower house, which dates back to the Moorish Kingdom in the 9th century. The original building has been expanded and altered many times since its establishment during the Taifa Kingdom in 1065. Especially after the recapture by the catholic kings in 1118 its design was remarkably influenced by the immigrating Muslims and their renowned Mudejar style.
