A hilltop castle presides over the town, this is the Sun Fortress of Lorca which is a former frontier town dating back to the 13th century when Spain was dominated by the Moors and Lorca was a defensive town whose primary function was the defence of the Arabic possessions. The castle has recently been restored to part of its former glory and represents a significant economic resource for the people of Lorca.
