The name "Castillo de Hierro" (Iron Castle) refers to the difficulty involved in conquering it, since its double wall, the thickness of its walls, the absence of a gate, two cisterns and the steepness of the rock made it impregnable. The building, which served as a refuge for the citizens of Pruna, is located on the highest part of the rock and this gives the town its name.
