Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Almeria / Roquetas de Mar / Castillo de Santa Ana
Castillo de Santa Ana appears on the heraldic shield of Roquetas del Mar, making the site an emblem of the area. The castle’s history stretches back to the 14th century and contains periods of rebuilding after near-destruction. Converted into a free-to-enter museum with exhibition space, it contains paintings, photographs, and other items of interest, as well as offers conferences and talks from time to time. The interior patio usually displays sculptures and even hosts seasonal concerts. Consider bringing a picnic.

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.
