King Zeit Palace

Castillo de Villamalefa

The former palace of King Zeit. Only three arches forming what is currently known as the Porch have been conserved.  Up until a few years ago, they were used as a refuge for the travellers’ horses. These arches and a few more conserved inside in addition to the doors of some of the surrounding houses were once all a part of the old Moorish palace where Abú Zayd’s son was born. The women from nearby towns would go to this place to give birth, which is why it has also been known as “La Paridera” (the birthing pen). The inside is closed to visitors as they’re private homes.
