    Castle little more I can add, it is worth and is a beautifully restored gem. This year we have enjoyed it at night, in the concert of the pianist and composer David Gomez, "a piano and 200 candles", with a super temperature, outdoors, with the sky... crashed and only the piano and cello. Good initiative of the City Council, £ 3 entry, the penalty is that the Organization to buy them is terrible (or will make the Auditorium of El Ejido or do tail before the concert and waits to see if there are free). They should properly manage the sale online, as well as the social, do it all very rudimentary... And, by the way, people should be more civilised in these acts, not smoking, not drinking alcohol, not to make noise during the performance... but this does not diminish the Castle nor the fantastic environment.

    Very nice. All alone against the sea air concerts free. The concerts are quiet, to enjoy the music in hondonancua with the location

  • 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.
