  • Fantastic 16th - 18th C castle with good museum of muskets, uniforms etc. inside, but off the main tourist routes so those going to the resort of Almerimar will probably never have heard of it but it ...  more »
  • We spent an afternoon in this castle because we got near Almerimar. Inside the Castle houses an exhibition which I imagine that it will change the subject for a while

  • Small but interesting battery, built in 1769. Wonderful view of the ocean and the surroundings. Exciting for the kids. Visited in February so we had the whole thing to us self :-)
  • Castillo de Guardias Viejas is a well kept castle in great condition, located in the town of Los Baños de Guardias Viejas. It is a battery built in 1769, near the rocky surface low rise of the Mediterranean Sea. There's a very interesting permanent exhibition of clothes and weapons of the Napoleonic era. with descriptions in multiple languages for visitors. The acoustics create a fantastic atmosphere so the venue is used for smaller local events and for larger ones such as the Natural Music Festival and Creamfields Andalucía. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • A unique and magical, place in a privileged spot from which to view the best sunsets.

  • The castle is beautiful and has a small exhibition of weapons and suits of the wars, very cool and desirable.

  • Located in the poniente Almeriense just surrounded by the sea of plastic, we enjoy this iconic place, with beaches rich in fauna marina and beautiful landscapes.
