Santa Ana Castle
Santa Ana Castle – Roquetas de Mar
The Santa Ana Castle is located on the Bajadilla Beach, in Roquetas de Mar, next to the Amphitheater, the Lighthouse and a few meters from the Port.
The construction of the Castle of Santa Ana or Las Roquetas dates from 1501 to 1522, its main function being to defend the coast from external invasions.
The earthquake of 1804 practically destroyed the castle, remaining only the bastion of artillery of the XVII century.
