Rota is a city that has watched tartesso's, roman's, arabs, and christians all settle in this city and leave. This means that it's a city that during the past centuries has taken in traits from many different cultures. It is for this reason that it is important to take a cultural tour of the most important monuments in the area.
We start this culturaltour in the Castillo de Luna, constructed in the XIII century by Alonso Perez de Guzman and restored in the year 2000. Today it is Rota's city hall. The fortress in the city is also of great interest, it was built to defend the city. Today there isn't much left of it, but it's remains are worth visiting. We must not forget to mention the Church of La O, built in the XVI century. It has a gothic style and was built by the orders of Rodrigo Ponce de León. This temple was finally finished in 1537. The Mercé tower or the San Roque chapel are dated back to the XVII century, and are also worth visiting. The Charity chapel was built a century later, in the XVIII century.
One of the most important monuments is that of the Corrales, a Natural Monument dedicated to the art of fishing. It's origins are roman, but it's activity has continued throughout the centuries.
