Betxi's Castle Palace is located in the territory of la Plana de Castellon, with a Renaissance-Mannerist character, is a clear example of the evolution and different use of this type of palatial defensive constructions in the Levante Region over time. It has a square floor shape and four towers or defensive bastions on the corners; it is attributed to Joan de Ambuesa Master. It has survived until today, as other Castle-palace as Alaquas and Albalat dels Sorells at Valencia Province, Geldo at Castellón Province or Cocentaina at Alicante Province, among other ones; nevertheless another palaces of that era, now are totally disappeared as Oliva's Palace.

In this case the building has surviving in part over time, adapting to new uses, urban evolution and speculative processes. Luckily currently the property is of municipal ownership and is undergoing restoration and has been documented previously by traditional means. This article aims to give a small brushstroke over part of the work carried out aimed at documenting that property in its current context.

For this purpose, it has carried out a rigorous and scientific surveying, without detracting previous graphic documentation works, using advanced documentation techniques, through active and passive 3D last generation imaging systems, as well as topographic support and global positioning systems. On the other hand, in order to concretize the enhancement, it has been modeled and built a series of digital reverse architectures and other ones tangible to represent the whole Castle-palace in their primitive appearance or some details of the building itself, based both on own evidences that still remain in the building and its surroundings, as the ones obtained through bibliography and archival and historical data, published or found related to this building.
