The excavations that are currently being carried out in the village of Castillejo are the start of a medium and long-term project aimed at recovering the entire environment by creating a large archaeological park that will allow you to immerse yourself in the heritage and historical wealth of the 'Murcia Medieval'.

The project 'Las Fortalezas del Rey Lobo' will be the first medieval archaeological park composed of 150 heritage sites around the fortresses of Monteagudo Castle, Castillejo, Larache Castle and Cabezo de Torres;

a landscape, natural and archaeological itinerary unique in Spain of more than 1.5 million m2.

The wealth of the almunias

The exhibition includes the rich historical and cultural heritage of the gardens of al-Andalus, the architecture of the 12th-century Murcian palaces, the Patio de los Leones de la Alhambra or the remote almunias, those farms that the elites enjoyed in the Islamic West : half fortresses, half gardens and half orchards.
