Castillo da Las Roquetas de Mar, Spain

Castillo da Las Roquetas de Mar, Spain The information about this castle in the small town of Roquetas de Mar was written in Spanish, but (as always) I took a photo of it for later translation and research. From what I can gather there has been a castle on this spot since about 1522. It was destroyed somehow in 1804 but reconstruction started in 1997 and the current castle you see in the photograph above was opened in 2003. It was a very difficult building to capture on camera to be honest because it is a very large, modern built castle but there is a lot of other things around it, like palm trees, roads, the sea etc.
