While this is not an old site, built in the 1980's, it is a really fascinating monument! It is only about 2 Euros, but it is such a funny little thing to see. You can climb to the top of some of the towers.

One of the most beautiful castles a have ever seen! amazing green nature surrounding with beautiful sea side view. Architecture of the castle it's just unique. Entrance fee 2euro per person. Open hours : 09-13:30PM and 17:00-21:00 PM. Definitely high recommendation.

This is an interesting little peace of architecture. The building makes for great photo shots. Obviously opening ours change frequently, so check before going there. Prices are very moderate.

We passed by and did a quick stop. We spent 15 minutes at Castillo de Colomares and it was ok, but nothing more.
