OUR GUIDE TO VISIT PALMONES

.

Palmones, located in the south of the province of Cadiz, is a town belonging to the municipality of Los Barrios, within the region of Campo de Gibraltar. It consists of a coastal strip of 2 kilometers long and is close to towns such as Algeciras and San Roque.

It has a river of the same name, navigable in a large section of its course and provides a great agricultural wealth at its mouth.

Along the mouth of the Palmones River there is a large promenade from where you can see some fishing boats resting on the shore.

The geographical location of the Palmones River Marshes are of vital importance for migratory birds in the Strait of Gibraltar making their intercontinental journey.

A LITTLE HISTORY

.

The Palmones River and the Bay of Algeciras have determined the history of the village of Palmones. Since the river is navigable and has a great agricultural wealth at its mouth, these factors have been essential for the first human settlements.

Some of the most important historical traces found in the municipality belong to the Roman period, around the 1st century.

In 1969, after carrying out some cleaning work in the pipes of the old salt pans, fragments of Roman pottery were found, which confirm the existence of primitive settlements in the area.

The main economic source of the city was the salt that came out of the old salt mines of Palmones to supply the fish salting industries.

In 1973, Don Juan Carlos de Borbon inaugurated the facilities of Acerinox, currently a business group that manufactures stainless steel.
