Remains of the Castle of the Templars, 12th-13th centuries, located on a rocky elevation, it must have been a defensive element of the Valencian border, probably dependent on the commandery of Villel. Nowadays only a few remains remain, which blend in with the rocks.

Castle of probable Muslim origin, although there are no data of its history in this period. At the end of the 12th century (1187), Villel and its villages, areas and belongings, among which was Tramacastiel, was handed over to the Order of Alfambra. After the union of this order with that of the Temple (in 1196), Villel and its villages passed to the Templars, who founded the Encomienda de Villel.

The few remains of this castle are located in a group of rocks that dominate the population. Among its ruins are the remains of a rectangular tower with masonry work that was part of the upper enclosure, with measures approximately 7 by 9 meters sideways and greatly reduced in height. Around it you can see traces of the enclosure that protected it. There is another smaller and also quadrangular tower, which is located on the top of a high rock. The whole is made of masonry, very uneven and joined with mortar. In 2016 it still has several retaining and perimeter walls, remains of buildings and what appears to be a reservoir located on the slope that leads to the castle, which would place it outside the current enclosure. You can also see a peculiar stone and mortar watchtower located on a rock in the center of the castle.

Church of El Salvador from the 17th century. It has three naves covered with a half-barrel vault with lunettes. The sacristy and the square masonry tower must have come from the previous church built at the end of the 16th or beginning of the 17th century. The image of the Virgin of the Rosary, which can be found in the church, is an interesting 16th century carving.

Hermitage of Santa María, 14th century, a single-nave building, made of masonry and with a gabled roof. The nave is covered on one side with a wooden roof and the chancel with a ribbed vault.

Visigothic cemetery, in a poor state of conservation.

Shrine of the Camino del Santo Gollizno. It is a small altar before which people used to worship, to expire the guilt of acts that had been engraved in the memory of the person who went there. It is like a small stone immersed in the mountains that link the village of Tramacastiel with Villel.
