Castillo de San Miguel, also known as San Miguel Castle (St. Michael’s Castle) is perched high upon the hill above the Old Town of Almuñécar. It is surrounded by the whitewashed houses in the barrio of San Miguel. This occupies the land once used by Phoenicians and Romans. It was also used in the Nasrid period for the dungeon. While not a huge castle, it is in very good condition. Inside there is a small museum with a scale model of what the area once was.
At the end of September we are always in for a treat with the Fiestas de San Miguel, in the barrio del Castillo Almuñécar! Up high on the hill in old town, near the castle, the streets come alive for 3 days and nights.
