The Torre del Homenaje was built in the 10th century and completely rebuilt in ashlar masonry in the 15th century at the time of the Catholic Monarchs. It seems that it was built as the first element of a reform project that was to affect the entire castle, but it was not completed since after the dynastic union of the kings of Castile and Aragon, and the consequent loss of the border character of Requena, they didn't make it necessary. Over time it has been used as a watchtower, as a prison, as a Municipal Museum and also as an Exhibition Hall.

Currently the Torre del Homenaje houses an Interpretation Center that allows us to know the history of Requena from its origins to the present.
