The Castelo de Loulé presents an outline of the walls of the old medina, with several towers and sections of stucco walls dating from the 12th-13th centuries hidden among the houses. The intramural subsoil preserves traces of buildings and layers of earth with materials from that period, including the ruins of a bathhouse and the remains of the old mosque, with its minaret tower converted by the Christians into a church (current parish church of São Clemente) after the conquest of the city in 1249. During the 14th-15th centuries, the old alcazaba, with its towers in the Muslim tradition, was adapted as the mayor's residence and today houses the Municipal Museum of Archeology.
