The Village of Castell de Ferro

The charming seaside town of Castell de Ferro, truly Spanish in character, still retains traces of its Roman and Arabic history: various monuments, the church of San Miguel and the fortress towers of Cambriles and La Instancia. Recent years have seen the town change from a fishing community to a tourist site due to its attractive beaches, possibility of many water sports, proximity to the Sierra Nevada and the Alpujarra, and its quaint character. It is also quite common to see windsurfing and diving, even during the cooler months.

The nearby village of Los Gualchos is reminiscent of a typical Alpujarra village where one can find many types of original handmade crafts.
