The Rugat Castle is a construction of Islamic origin belonging to the municipality of Aielo de Rugat.
It was located at the top of the hill of El Castellet, next to the town. It is currently in a state of progressive ruin and only the remains of its main façade are still standing, with the door and several windows still visible. This fortress formed part of the mountainous defensive system in the south of the province of Valencia, together with the manors of Carbonera, Palma, Villalonga and El Rebollet, and served as a lookout and defence for the whole area.
