WHAT TO SEE IN ROTA

In Rota there are many things to see because of its geographical location, being surrounded by a great diversity of beaches.

Among the urban beaches offered by Rota are El Rompidillo / El Chorrillo beach and La Costilla beach. Both have a promenade and tourist services such as gastronomic, leisure and active tourism activities.

The natural beach par excellence is the beach of Piedras Gordas / La Almadraba, a place of great scenic beauty.

The natural beach of Punta Candor and the beach of La Ballena are of great extension and with many services, being two beaches with great tourist activity and very familiar. Between the two beaches is Aguadulce beach.

The Corrales de Rota (Fishing Weirs) are a point of tourist interest for nature lovers. You can get to know there the marine and historical heritage of Rota.

The most important historical buildings are the 18th-century Castillo de Luna, a building with great architectural value; and the Torre de la Merced, with beautiful views.

The cultural visit ends with religious buildings, such as the Church of Nuestra Señora de la O, a temple of various architectural styles and of great importance for the people. Other historical points of interest are the Church of la Caridad, the Church of San Roque, and the Church of El Carmen.

The Central Market of Rota, of 1928, has great cultural value for the municipality. When walking its streets and squares you can discover unique spots such as the Arco de Regla, a magnificent monument very relevant from a historical point of view.

On TUDESTINO we want to offer you all the information to discover the cultural richness of the municipalities of the Province of Cádiz.
