The scene of the famed legend of the troubadour Macías, the castle, of Arab origin, is one of the main attractions in Arjonilla. The legend, which served as inspiration for writers like Lope de Vega and Larra, tells the story of the unfortunate love between the young Macías and Doña Elvira. It is also the main argument of the medieval seminars held in the town each autumn.
