Santa Catalina Castle

Santa Catalina Castle

I still remember my first time in Tarifa, it was so impressive to see that beautiful castle beside the sea. Under a sky brushed with clouds it looks even more sttuning.

Here´s a site reminding us how Tarifa was always an strategic location between two continents. Santa Catalina castle dates from the beginning of the XX century but it is located on a hill called like it.

This place has been used by military forces and religious people for a long time. After that it was the most southerly meteorological station in Europe. Now the castle is an abandonated building but it retains its magical and beauty aura.

Here you have some pictures from different perspectives,
