The remains of El Puig Castle
In the Castle Mountain aka La Patà, we find the remains of a Muslim castle, known by the Arabs as Yubayla. The castle was destroyed by the Arabs previous to their departure so the Christian troops could not use it as a base from which to launch an assault on the city of Valencia. The Christians rebuilt it making it a key element in the conquest of Valencia by Jaume I in 1238. It was declared National Historical-Artistic Monument in 2002.
