Garrucha - History

History


Garrucha is a city born for the sea and its ports, and the promenade that surrounds almost all its coast is proof of that.

In the 16th century it became one of the most important fishing and commercial ports in the Mediterranean, and was the target of numerous pirate attacks.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Garrucha experienced its most important moment, with great economic activity and great social activity: casinos, dance floors and a tennis club provided a great distinction in comparison to the other coastal towns in the area.
