THE Department of Culture of Almuñecar Town Hall has opened the interior of the west tower of the Castillo de San Miguel to the public as a new space to visit.

“It is a tower from the Christian era built on the bedrock of Cerro de San Miguel, in the heart of the old town, whose structure highlights the brick vaulted ceiling and the entrance arch,” according to the municipal archaeologist, Eva Urquieta.
The Castillo de San Miguel is, therefore, the most representative monument of the civilisations that passed through Almuñecar as it has important references to each one of them in the last 3,000 years of history.
