Puerta del Mar Square is named after the main entrance to the walled fortress of Adra, which dates back to the mid-16th century. Its purpose was for defence of the coastline after the capture of the Kingdom of Granada by the Catholic Monarchs. At the end of the 17th century, various chapels were built therein to enable access from the street to attend mass. What to visit in Adra
The definitive configuration of the public space was finalised in the year 1884 after the purchase of several lots that have a boundary at the Natalio Rivas Carrera in its southern part. The square has been adopted by the City Council since 1937.
This is located in an urban area that has several points of interest and is the starting point for many routes or walks. People who pass through this place generally also visit other squares such as Los Martos Square and Saint Nicholas Square. The location of this square is very good, being very well connected to the rest of the places that can be visited and that are just as interesting.
