    The most remarkable monument in Cartaya is Zuniga family's castle, built in the 15th century and restored about 20 years ago.

    A few kilometers apart from town, the small village of El Rompido lives from fishing and beach in summer.

    A few, modest restaurants border the ria, waiting for the dwellers that, in summer, multiply by four the total population. The beach seems safe for children.

    El Rompido lighthouse (new) 1 more image

    El Rompido near Cartaya is best known for it's great seafood restaurants, golf courses and it's lighthouses. The shorter lighthouse was built in 1861 but was damaged and neglected. The newer more modern lighthouse is located next to the older and shorter lighthouse which still stands. This new lighthouse was built in 1975 next to the original, shorter 1861 tower.

    We didn't eat outside the hotel, but the several restaurants by the seaside were an invitation, and a promise of fresh seafood. Maybe next time, if it there will be one!

    We had two extremely different nights in this hotel: the first one, New Year's eve, the animation was good, with a good band playing until 5 AM; the second night... nothing, just a bar and a few people playing table games.

    What is the truth about this hotel's nights?

Cartaya Warnings and Dangers

    El Rompido - Spain

    by solopes Updated Feb 20, 2014

    Our visit to Cartaya started with great fun: My friend José Manuel was navigating, using his GPS that mentioned our Hotel.

    Leaving Cartaya to El Rompido the instructions seemed to be accurate until one roundabout where Fernanda saw a signal indicating the hotel to the right, while the GPS ordered us to go straight ahead.

    "We cannot discuss with GPS" and we went ahead.

    A few hundred meters later the GPS relaxed: "You arrived at your destination". It was already night, but also easy to understand that we were in an alley working as access to a private garage.

    After the large laughs we followed the right way and arrived easily to the hotel.

    Next day we were near the alley, and, of course, I had to make a picture of it.
