    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.
