A few years ago this castle was just a ruin, then the council decided to carry out some work.
Unfortunately the person(s) responsible have become confused between RENOVATION and RESTORATION. This castle has been renovated in the worst possible way.
Just to clarify -
Restoration is to restore the building to how it was when it was built (using the original materials as far as possible - see nearby Lorca castle as an example).
Renovation is the process by which a building is "updated" using modern materials, often having no bearing with the original design or construction.
And believe me, this castle has been renovated with absolutely no consideration of the history of the building.
The first impression is of the monstrosity of a lift attached to the side of the castle, presumably to aid access for the elderly or infirm. In typical Spanish fashion the lift doesn't work, its filled with cardboard and other rubbish and doesn't look as if it has worked for several years.
Once inside the castle (having used the steps) the walls are all made of rendered concrete, the windows in the main part of the castle are double glazed and in one part there is a fine glass floor.
The renovators of this castle have given such little thought to the design and re-construction that instead of positioning the artillery so that they point out to sea (in order to defend the castle) they have actually positioned the two cannon so they point over the town!
There is no information available in English other than a five paragraph brochure, which tells us that the castle was built in 1756. unfortunately there is nothing left of the original castle unless you peer over the battlements.
