It was originally Gothic in style, although it is now mostly Renaissance. It maintains the original Gothic structure, although it later acquired the Renaissance style. At present it is completely restored and rehabilitated. On the facade stands out the noble coat of arms of the Vilarrasa family.

The entrance is through a wide doorway with a semicircular vault with long stone voussoirs. The access leads to a rear courtyard, around which the rooms were distributed, a set of Gothic elements such as the staircase, the pointed arch and the stone curbstone of the cistern are preserved. This cistern has traditionally been used to supply the village. Another Gothic element is the semicircular arched gallery on the platform.

The facade has a noble coat of arms, the Vilarrasa coat of arms with the five roses, which means that the building is considered to be of cultural interest under the Valencian Cultural Heritage Law.

At the southern end of the facade there was a tower, now disappeared, very similar to the tower of Benavites.
