It was built by the Montcada, lords of the barony of Mequinenza. It dates from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, although in 1959 the architect Adolf Florensa reformed it considerably. It points to the border point between Aragon and Catalonia, and between the provinces of Zaragoza and Lleida.

Although it is currently a private property belonging to the ENDESA Foundation, the regime of visits to the Castle allows it to be done on non-working Tuesdays in the morning. To do this, you have to contact the Tourist Office of the City of Mequinenza.
