  • It is small and is dedicated to exhibitions, when we visited him had a civil wedding and could not walk through everything, I could not access the terrace by air (I guess that as strong currents affect the building and contents). Also celebrating a medieval market which, as lately with these markets, of medieval had little. The best, the views and the location next to the sea and next to the port

  • In my opinion it is one fortress rather than a castle but is well maintained and is worthy of must-see if you go to Roquetas de mar.

  • The castle is a restoration, although it retains an original stronghold. It is closed to the public and hosts exhibitions and other cultural events. If you're in the area, it is worth to visit and tour the exhibition on the history and customs of the municipality. And since you are, don't miss tapas by the bars in the area. There are many overlooking the sea with the city of Almeria and Cabo de Gata in the background.

  • Its best to sit and chat in late evening or late night. Awesome place for couples who want to spend some time aloof. Safe and quiet.
  • It's free and somewhat interesting. Good view from the top. The small ship replicas we're interesting. Watch out for siesta closing hours
  • Great ancient place from xvii century.. By the way you could see an exposition of sci-fi stuff. Free entrance. Must seeing place
  • Lovely to see historic Spain...Roquestas we Mar is a vast beach area...but the beach and coast near Castillo de Santa Ana has character
  • Pretty castle but only takes 20 minutes to do it all.
