Concepcion Castle (Castillo de la Concepcion) is located at Parque Torres .The castle is on top of Monte de la Concepcion and it is a medieval castle. The Moors constructed the castle in the 12th or 13th centuries. In 1245 the city of Cartagena became part of the Crown of Castile because of the Infante Alfonso (later King Alfonso X the Wise). At the end of the 13th century the king ordered the construction of the Homage Tower at the patio of the old castle. The style of the castle was Norman and it dominated the port and was a sign of the power of the king. At the end of the 17th century the castle was made larger. However in the 18th century the castle was abandoned because newer castles had been constructed. In the 20th century reconstruction of the castle was made. The castle’s Homage Tower has an interpretation center that relates the history of Cartagena, and this was constructed in 2003 by the architects Jose Manuel Chacon and Alberto Ibero.
