Most of them are over six centuries old, witnesses of the Middle Ages, built by the Arab population to defend themselves from the Christians fighting for the Reconquest.

The Hins-Alfaray Walls are some of the most important remains of the Moorish town that was built in this area in the 12th century, during the Almohad period. It was a fortified enclosure, a ring of walls surrounding the main watchtower that served to defend the settlement. 

Toledillo Castle is a Muslim defensive construction. R. Fernández González chronologically places this fortress in the Umayyad emirate, and it would continue to be expanded during the Caliphate period. It was rebuilt in the eleventh and twelfth centuries in the face of the Christian thrust from the north.
