In the centre of the town, between the Borrunes ravine and the moat formed from the Bunol River, this castle towers on a hill. There has been a castle here since the 13th century. The location was strategic, being on the border between Valencia and Castilla. It used to be a Muslim stronghold, later owned by Christians. Over the centuries, it changed ownership multiple times, and was ransacked by Napoleon. It was later used as a prison. Visitors will find the old Mercador Palace, the Church of the Saviour, and a part of the old Gothic Palace. There are two museums on the grounds. The Archaeological Museum exhibits artifacts from various times in Bunol's past, from the Paleolithic to Iron Age to Roman times. The Ethnological Museum is decorated like a 19th century home, showcasing professions, tools and items prevalent in that time. These days the city of Bunol uses it as a museum of outdoor sculpture and center of cultural activities. In summer, there are musical concerts in the courtyard.
You'll find the town's tourist office right outside the castle.
