This is a wonderful place to spend an hour or so wandering about, browsing the historical information about the area and getting some lovely photos. Then afterwards dine at what must be the best restaurant in Almeria just a few minutes away in the port - easy to miss unless you keep your eye out - Alejandros, the only Michelin... More

The castle is a lovely place to visit, for free, but it's all a bit empty. You have to keep a very canny eye to find out what is on. They do have painting and photo exhibitions, each of which I have found interesting but, as with most things around here, you have to know what's happening to know what's... More

A gentle stroll from El Reyal Club Nautic round the harbour to the Torre Santa Ana, a well restored fortress originally built in C16 to protect the coast from raiders and restored in the 1990's. The Tower is a fine example of a defensive structure of it's period. Unfortunately the Museum was changing exhibitions as we visited so was not... More

Right on the beach small castle great for evening shows but not much to see. the views from top are of the long sandy beaches. the front has canons and makes for good photos but you can see it all in about 20 mins. weekends there are atractions in front of the gates .

Well worth our drive, hour and 15 mins. There was an exhibition inside but not really sure what it was all about, explanation in Spanish. Displays and commentary on castle in both Spanish and English. Good views and great photos taken. Nice to sit and stroll around castle, lighthouse and marina. Coffee enjoyed at marina looking back at castle. Free... More

This is a lovely little castle by the harbour and it's free. Lots of interesting art on display and lovely views from the top. They have spent a lot of money restoring it with a big stage and sliding roof to open it up and amazing marble staircases. It was about a 40 minute stroll along the promenade from our... More
