Culture in Tarifa
Conjunto Arqueológico de Baelo Claudia
The Roman town has its origins in the late 2nd century B.C. and was built on a former Phoenician-Punic settlement known as Bailo Baelokun. It was an important commercial port due to its proximity to Africa.
Castillo de Guzmán el Bueno
Built in the middle of the 10th century by order of Caliph Abd al-Rahman III. This fortress had a very important role during the reconquest, the defense of attacks by Barbary Pirates in centuries after and the War of Independence.
