Nowadays, it is only possible to see some parts of the complex built during the 12th century in Alberona: the ruins of the palace, a part of the undergrounds and the tower of the Grand Prior.

This impressive palace used to be the seat of the Knights Templar, who stayed there until 1307. After the Order was abolished,  the building was given to the knights of Malta, who lived in the town until the first years of the 19th century.

Nowadays the palace and the tower cannot be visited anymore because of structural problems.
