Free entry. A small castle but take the stairs, or lift to the top and you get great views around the bay. The castle also has displays of photos, paintings and model ships. A nice way to spend time and you can take in the port as well.

Not a major attraction but if you are in the vicinity it is well worth popping in, you might even see a wedding! Nice building with Art Gallery and nice views from the top. Can see it all within half an hour.

If you are in Roquetas de Mar, you just have to see. Nice tiny castle with few cannons and big tower dominates the coast of Roquetas. Don't expect long visit, you can see all in 10 minutes.

Lovely castle and we went right to the top. There are a few exhibitions and canons outside. There was also a wedding on that day.

Great views of the bay etc., but not so large that it will keep you interested for more than 30 minutes

Visited here after walking to the port. There was an artist exhibition on which showed some nice paintings also there was some good views and an area where there was some interesting local area information which I didn't know. Also was a nice shelter from the sun on a very hot day.

I have not been inside the castle itself, one can also walk around it as there is a park on one side and the boulevard goes between the sea and the castle. It has been restored to perfection, maybe it is better now than it has been when it was newly built.
