The Saint Anne Castle, also called Las Roquetas Castle, is a fortification built between the end of the 16th century and the 17th century, which served as a refuge for the inhabitants of the municipality in the face of constant pirate attacks. It is located in the surroundings of the Port of Roquetas de Mar.
In the 17th century, the Saint Anne Castle was practically destroyed due to successive earthquakes, leaving only one of the towers that has been preserved and integrated into the recovery project of this historic installation, which ended in May 2003.
Nowadays, the interior is used as an exhibition hall in which paintings, photographs, sculptures, etc. are exhibited while enjoying great views of the coast. Admission is free.
It is worth mentioning the interior patio, which is of great beauty, in which the summer season musical concerts and shows are frequently held.
