  • This castle was used to alert when the pirates approached the coast and today you can go visit him on any occasion, although I recommend that implementations with a day that do not wind and Sun there are wonderful. In summer you can go to theatres and concerts that made 4 days week or more there, but go very soon or buy the ticket previously because many people will.

  • It is a small Châtelet with good views over the sea that was completely renovated in the 1980s. In its interior there is very well exposed Napoleon-era costumes and weapons. Free entry and parking

  • 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.
  • 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.
