Cliffs and watchtower Maro - Cerro Gordo
This Natural Area is located between the towns of Almuñécar (Granada) and Nerja (Málaga). It is made up of steep cliffs interspersed with inaccessible beaches and coves, while on the slopes of the mountain you can find cultivated areas distributed on terraces.
There is a small signposted path that leads to a spectacular viewpoint and the Cerro Gordo watchtower, built during the 16th century to defend the local population from possible pirate attacks. Watching the sunset from there is a sight worth seeing.
Castle of La Herradura
This 18th-century castle-fortress had defensive purposes and communicated with the watchtowers of Cerro Gordo and Punta de la Mona. Today it houses a thematic museum project linked to the shipwreck of 25 galleys belonging to the Invincible Armada, which occurred in the bay of La Herradura and in which between 3,000 and 5,000 people lost their lives, called '1562. The Fury of the Sea'.
