The Castle of Láchar is a unique fortress that became a palace. Its construction is attributed to the end of the Nazari period. The current building however is the result of a romantic arabesque-design according to the fashion of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. During the first decade of this century it was privately owned by a Dutch citizen who held the post of honorary consul of Guinea-Bissau, where for years waved the flag of the African country on the facade of the castle, along with that of Spain.
Currently renovations are made and they trying to recover the artistic and historical elements that were affected during the modernization by the previous owners. Its current owners keep it as private property and are going to give limited access on certain public days after the repair and redecorations are done.
