Although the castle and city walls overlooking the city of Archidona, are in ruins, there is a part of the enclosure which has been restored, called the Sun Gate. On the rest of the original Roman walls, the Arabs built a fortress which had three defensive belts, although today there are more than two which are quite deteriorated. This complex defense emphasize the Sun Gate is one of the inputs located on the corner of the wall and is surprisingly robust and completely square with stairs shape, and its orientation towards the East.

Bien que le château et les murailles de la ville qui surplombent la ville d'Archidona, soient en ruines, il y a une partie de l'enceinte qui a été restaurée, appelée la Porte du Soleil. Sur le reste des murailles originales romaines, les arabes ont construit une forteresse qui avait trois ceintures défensives, même si aujourd'hui il n'y en a plus que deux qui sont assez détériorées. De ce complexe de défense, soulignons la Porte du Soleil qui est l'une des entrées situées sur un coin de la muraille et qui surprend par sa robustesse et sa forme complètement carrée avec des escaliers, ainsi que son orientation vers l'Est.
