Mostly walls of stone. You have to use you imagination. There are far better preserved examples in other towns like Alicante or Almeria.

Unfortunately the castle is ruined so badly there's not much to see these day. Parts of the castle are also integrated to other buildings. Takes you a total of five minutes to see the exterior.

The old quarter is a wonderful place just to walk around and enjoy especialy at night, when there are less people walking around the walls, we had fun exploring the alley ways, seeing the walls made the visit even better.
