The San Marcos Castle is one of the most representative buildings in the Puerto de Santa María. Built on a mosque its towers and battlements are one of the most distinct and old images of the city.

Its evolution has gone hand to hand with the local urban development, until becoming a symbolic building during different eras, so that what we know today is the result of several transformations since the original building around the 10th century.
