  • Expecting a sea fort? It’s more of a gallery... but this is not a bad thing! Photographs of locality and historical significance are great. The views from the roof are also pretty great. Easy parking (free) nearby and no entry cost. The usual opening hours (closed for siesta which we heard people complaining about!) so plan your trip. Could do with a cafe? Though there are a few nearby and shops too.
  • Surprising little gem in the heart of Roquetas de mar. Free entry, lots of interesting exhibits, which are nicely laid out - very little in English, but easy to get the gist of what the display is about. Winding staircase through maritime exhibit to top of castle, with lovely shoreline views. In the evenings a large number of concerts in the hall below. Well worth a visit.
