ROQUETAS DE MAR

Roquetas is an undiscovered gem situated in the Almeria region of southern Spain. It has a bustling town and port with stunning mountainous backdrop (see panorama of port below). However, the town has also developed its resort potential and created a smart modern tourist area 3 km to the east, Roquetas de Mar.

 

Roquetas es una joya por descubrir, situada en la región de Almería sur de España. Tiene una bulliciosa ciudad y un puerto con el impresionante telón de fondo montañoso (ver panorama del puerto de abajo). Sin embargo, la ciudad también ha desarrollado su potencial balneario y creó un zona turística moderna elegante 3 km hacia el este, Roquetas de Mar. flag.jpg

The Castillo de Santa Ana

Originally built in the fourteenth century to protect the local salt production, the castle had been subjected to attacks from the Turkish fleet, earthquakes and explosion caused by lightning strike! However in 1997 restoration commenced and now it performs an important role as a three floor exposition centre for the town. On the ground floor there is a large area for topical expositions which in 2014 was focused on the work of a local photographer on images of the Spanish army in Afghanistan. The second floor has multi-media displays showing the history of the area and its development including an explanation of the intensive horticulture.
