Sax Castle stands 524 meters above sea level on a steep cliff overlooking Sax (Alicante) and dominates much of the Vinalopó valley between Elda and Villena.  The oldest remains found in the Peña del Castillo are Iberians and Romans, although the origin of the current fortress is Andalusian, probably Almohad. It is one of the three great fortresses of Alto Vinalopó, together with those of Villena and Biar, and was part of the defensive line of fortifications. Ramón Folch Viscount of Cardona tried to conquer it, without success, already in 1239, but it was the knights of the Order of Calatrava, commanded by the Commander of Alcañiz, who took it at the end of that year.
His possession was transferred to Alfonso X of Castile, because it is territory that the agreements had assigned to the Castilian domination. It was integrated into the manor of Villena, until in 1480 it was incorporated into the Crown by the Catholic Monarchs.


The castle stands on an elongated hill, inaccessible by the western slope, so the fortress is accessed by the northwest. It is irregular and consists of two enclosures: exterior barbican, for the defense of bridges and entrances, and a large walled body, which contained a large shelter.1  At its ends are the two towers, the main one being rectangular, with walls up to 2 meters thick; inside was the weapons room, and on it a crenellated terrace that was accessed by a staircase of pointed ogival arches. The first and second of the plants have a pointed barrel vault, with bolts in the latter and in the third. On the slope of the cliff on which this fortification sits there were other defense works aimed at protecting the main access of the castle, in which the main gate opened.1  There was a drawbridge as access to the Tower of Tribute that today has disappeared. Next to the tower there is a large cistern with one of its sides. It is believed that its current factory dates from the fourteenth century, the oldest part being the northern area, and the most modern the tribute tower. A couple of years ago they put some stairs to be able to climb to visit it on the side that has the rock.
