The castle of Banyeres de Mariola, is located at 830 meters of altitude. The enclosure consists of a polygonal plan with a double walled enclosure in which the Homage Tower stands out, built using the tapial technique (lime, sand, water and small stones). The access is made from the northeast, where you can access the parade ground. When we went up the stairs, we found the cistern and the rooms that housed the surveillance troops. In the last section is the keep, which consists of three floors and houses the festival museum. A museum that allows you to take a historical tour of the most outstanding aspects of the party. The contents are distributed by the main dependencies of this historical building, an extraordinary setting to understand some festive acts that recall the reconquest. Firstly, in the room where the troops were located we find the different costumes that make up the ten comparsas in the municipality. Already in the Tower of Homage we can enjoy the route that supposes the explanation of the party, as well as the description of each festive day and a sample of the covers of the festive programs.
