The Castillico (Castro de Filabres - Almeria)
Located in the municipality of Castro de Filabres, the Castle of Castro de Filabres, better known as the “Castillico”, is a vestige of the history of this town. It is said that in the 8th century, an Arab tribe that was persecuted, decided to enter these lands and take refuge.

In fact, "Castro" means "Camp" in Latin, referring to the camp that the first Arabs installed in this area. From the “Castillico” there are hardly any remains, but they are enough to demonstrate the Arab influence in these lands.
