  • Worth to visit this once, so you end up in the history, and the view is really beautiful.

  • A place that worth a visit. The views are spectacular and it is worth going there just to see it. It is advisable to go if you have a little time to escape. If you like the history this place will fascinate you.

  • Military enclave to tourist attraction. Certainly it must be exceptional and in fact are facilities that can be visited. An oversized cannons and the constructions of the thirties of the twentieth century, who want to imitate the style of the castles. The complex is interesting and spectacular sea views from this high position. It is worth a visit even if the access road is very narrow and with lots of curves.

  • Really great place, car drive up was fun, with some great views. Need to keep an eye on small kids as it's not the most health and safety conscious place! The big guns are great!
  • Great place to visit but a missed opportunity as no café shop etc. So bring some drink (especially in the summer). Great views and historical. Be careful with children as it's easy to fall off and trip over some of the buildings etc.
  • Great place. Old military installation built in 1933/36 to protect Cartagena, with two huge Vickers 381 mm guns. These have been painted black and many of the surrounding buildings restored, plus there are two other smaller guns. Lots of the other buildings have been left to decay and you can just mooch around at you leisure. Even if you aren't interested in guns, there are wonderful views from the cliffs, north to Cartagena and south to Mazaron. Well worth the 5 mile drive up the single track road.
  • Road can be a bit tricky, but we'll worth the trip. The views are amazing.
  • 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.
