Arjona was the birthplace of Alhamar, king of Granada, founder of the Nasrid dynasty and promoter of the building of the Alhambra. The town acquired special importance within Al-Andalus because of him. Only a few remains of that splendid period are preserved, among which the cistern of the former castle of Arjona stands out. It has been recently restored and turned into a museum.
