  • The views are spectacular, it is worth going if you're looking for a secluded and wild place. There are routes for walking along the entire environment. The theme of cannons is secondary, the view is the remarkable thing. The ascent is road mountain, step by step and enjoying it.

  • A magical place, with stunning views of the cliffs of cabo Tiñoso and constructions of the ancient coast batteries that protected Cartagena. Stunning restored cannons.

  • narrow road, avoid going on holidays, watch out for bikes, look at the rock formations

  • A breathtaking place to visit. Its totally out in the middle of nowhere. Be prepared for a for a cautious drive up to it but once you are there it's completely worth it. The old buildings are amazing to see and the views are fantastic.
  • Easy access drive up with limited adhoc parking. A very large site to explore freely with tunnels and abandoned buildings. The nicest battery around. Make sure you explore right to the end as on a previous visit I missed half the site! If you follow the low path you come to a tunnel and out to the end area .... Brilliant clean place for all ages to explorer
  • Beautiful drive with magnificent scenery. Just have to take it slowly and carefully as there us not too much room to spare if a car comes in the opposite direction. The guns were built in England in 1923 and have a range of approximately 20 miles. They are busy renovating the complex for tourists as the guns were decommissioned in about 1973 apparently. Real beasts. Well worth the trip.
  • Historic place with amazing view. Bring your own food, or visit the local taverna at the bottom of the mountain. Great burger.
  • Amazing. Not busy in the off season. No entry free; not commercialized at all! Great place to spend the night in a motorhome also.
