  • It is a very small and cozy, perfect for a civil ceremony, I chose it. The great disadvantage its price for the realization of the Act.

  • The castle is situated on a small promontory Guardias Viejas. More than a century castle is a fortification with an artillery battery to defend the coast. Restored, now houses a museum with a display of clothes and arms of the Napoleonic era. In summer there are also concerts. Interesting structure that advice to fans.

  • 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.
  • That's great. I went to make a film with a school project. It was called a history of cinema. Well preserved. Magnificent.

  • A place to visit. It is worthwhile for the environment. The sea view combined with the scenery of the imvernaderos plastic but it is today's reality.
