Castillo de Salobreña
Castillo de Salobreña
It is known the existence of a fortress in Salobreña since the X century. Although the distribution corresponds to the construction that was built at Nasrid time, the Castillo de Salobreña is the result of the contribution of the Muslim and Christian architecture.
It has 3 enclosures: the disposition of the interior comes from the old Nasrid palace; the other two, with a defensive function, are a Castilian extension of the end of the XV century. Refreshing internal gardens surround the architectonic volumes. From its towers it is possible to see the urban network of Salobreña, the fertile plain, the Mediterranean Sea, the close mountain ranges and, even, Sierra Nevada.
Its towers, battlements and walls, its location and landscapes have made it one of the most visited monuments of the coast of Granada.
