The earldom of Warwick was created in 1088 and the earls controlled the town in the medieval period and built town walls, of which Eastgate and Westgate survive. The castle developed into a stone fortress and then a country house and is today a popular tourist attraction.The Great Fire of Warwick in 1694 destroyed much of the medieval town and as a result most buildings post-date this period.
