Our travel guide to Conil de la Frontera

Conil is, without a doubt, a select destination for sun and beach tourism. It is one of the liveliest towns in the region, especially in summer, partly driven by the many residential areas that surround it. Its cuisine, leisure and active tourism offer make it a perfect place for your holidays. Thanks to this Travel Guide to Conil de la Frontera you can find all the activities and the best travel tips for your trip.

A fascinating history

Numerous vestiges attest to the Phoenician presence in the area. Port of undeniable importance during the Roman and Visigothic times, it has managed to maintain the flavour and charm of the seaside villages. Of the medieval fortifications, it conserves canvases of its walls in the Puerta de la Villa (16th century) and in a bulwark that fortified them. From the watchtowers of Roche, Puerco and Castilnovo (16th and 17th centuries), possible pirate attacks or invasions were sighted. Finally, the Tower of Guzmán, from the 14th and 15th centuries, was part of the old castle. It is also the nucleus around from which the population was formed.

In the same Plaza del Castillo are located the Parish Church of Santa Catalina and the Town Hall. Other outstanding monuments are the Hospital de la Misericordia, the Hermitage of Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno (patron saint of the town), the Convent of Nuestra Señora de las Virtues and the Hermitage of the Espíritu Santo.

There are also valuable natural spaces in Conil, such as Pinares de Roche and El Colorado.

Main Activities: Beaches, Health and Wellness, Active Tourism, Cuisine.
