  • Is a place to spend it tomorrow, go of excursion and losing is in the immensity of the blue of the sea Mediterranean. In these buildings, one can understand the strategic importance of the city of Cartagena and the efforts that were made at the beginning of the 20TH century to defend it

  • Castillitos battery is a real strength in the 1930s, in the Cabo Tiñoso. The battery is equipped with English Vickers, long-range cannons, capable of sending projectiles of almost a ton more than 30 kilometers. Given its huge structure, its handling is made by transmissions mechanical. In those days, the batteries of this type of weaponry that protected to Cartagena and its military base, made her impregnable so much that it was the last berth in the Civil War. The installation and maintenance of these batteries and others such as in Tarifa in Cadiz was a wonderful person, a gunsmith from Cartagena (proudly, my maternal grandfather). The location is ideal, with spectacular views of the Cartagena coast, towards the three Millennium old city and La Azohia, Isla Plana and Puerto de Mazarrón. It stands up to the entrance to the docks of Cartagena. In the Cabo Tiñoso is one of the most beautiful beaches of Spain, CALA CERRADA, of very difficult access by land, as well as the beach of La Azohía A Castillitos battery is accessed along a winding road from Cartagena road Azohía, through the hamlet of Campillo de in

  • This place is a bizarre mix of ruins, underground tunnels and beautifully restored castle. We loved exploring all the tunnels and secret bunkers. If i were to go again we'd take torches and some drinks as its remote with no toilet facilities. But well worth it for castle/ fort fans. Look out for the spooky man at the end of the tunnel.
  • Absolutely spectacular battery with excellent views and wonderful history. Up a windy road with a bad surface, but well worth it. Ample parking facilities. Leave your car and walk half a kilometre to these well-preserved guns which overlook and protect the bay.
  • We walked around for about 3 hours. So much to see and discover. Such an unreal place, hard to explain. Our kids, 13 and 12, would love to go again tomorrow. Historical place with great views and miles to walk.
  • Its free has great views but due to the lack of toilet facilities this place smells like a hot sewage pit with annoying flies definitely not a picnic destination unless you like to eat in unclean toilets. On a plus side if your caught short ,let it flow.
  • Make sure that you visit when the weather is favorable, it can become quite windy. Once your there, it is a great place to view the sea and coastline. Great place for pictures of you and your friends.
