Roquetas de Mar History

You can see Prehistoric, Iberian and Roman settlements along the coastline of Roquetas de Mar, highlighting, on the banks of "La Algaida" which was characterised because it took advantage of the sea resources.

The tower of "Los Cerrillos" is the only defensive testimony that is preserved, together with the watchtower, which was converted into the "Castle of Santa Ana" to guarantee the defence and salt trade, which was one of the sources of wealth of the City chests.

Currently the castle has been restored by the Workshop School of Roquetas de Mar.
