The fortified mosque from the village entrance

The Mezquita is a fortified mosque on the hill top with an adjacent old bullring. The Mezquita was built in the 10th century from a visigothic basilica from the 5th century, reusing its materials. It is one of the few surviving Spanish rural mosques. It is an oddly-shaped building, made of brick and stone in a trapezoid shape, probably because of the hilly terrain.
