Its construction began in the 14th century, although it suffered several attacks that left it almost completely demolished, which is why, during the reign of Felipe II, at the end of the 16th century, a new Renaissance construction phase began that would be demolished again in late nineteenth century due to the strategic location of Alcudia.
