The southern gateway of the castle comprises of two successive doorways with a 6m. difference in level. To both sides of the first doorway, are two towers each 6 m. in height. The walls and ceilings of the successive doorway are of sculptured stone. The vital structures of this castle were near the northern gateway, and the only relic is a tower. In the southern sector are 12 narrow chambers facing east, besides other with barrel shaped ceilings, constructed with the ramparts of the castle. An interesting aspect is the water canal that enters the castle from the north, terminating in the cubical water reservoirs excavated in stone.
