Castillo de Guardias Viejas




The castle of Guardias Viejas is located in the town of Los Baños de Guardias Viejas, in the municipality of El Ejido in the province of Almería. It is a coastal fort built in the eighteenth century on rocky terrain, near the Mediterranean Sea. It is owned by the Junta de Andalucía and the municipality of El Ejido has carried out restoration work on the building, which houses a permanent exhibition of army clothing and weapons of the Napoleonic era. In 1985, the monument was declared of cultural interest. The castle is one of five forts owned by the town, the others being la Torre de Cerro Moriscas, la Torre Cuadrada, la Torre de los Bajos y la Torre de Balerma.
