Hotel Angela is a legendary hotel with lots of history. The city of Fuengirola also knows lots about history as has one of the biggest historic heritages in Costa del Sol, so for this reason a few weeks ago we recommended you to visit the Fuengirola History Museum but… have you ever visited our castle?
The Fuengirola castle is known as Sohail Castle and the caliph Abderraman III in the 10th Century was the one who ordered its construction. Strategically located up on a hill and beside the mouth of the Fuengirola River its main purpose was being a fortress to control the coast.
This fortress has been destroyed and rebuilt on a few occasions and nowadays is considered as the most important tourist attraction in town.
This is not only an attraction though as it also hosts several events organised by the City Council and concerts during the summer months.
The castle is approximately 2 miles away from Hotel Angela and it is possible to get there walking down the promenade.
If you have not seen it yet make the most of these beautiful spring days to have a nice walk and explore this interesting area of Fuengirola….Because in Fuengirola you can enjoy the sun and our history at the same time!!
