The’guns’ of Mazarrón is a real day out and is mainly about the beautiful rough landscape, history and the outdoors. After a scenic drive to the top of the mountain you will find abandoned buildings and the impressive castle with its huge cannons. The views are amazing. The castle can certainly be viewed from inside but wear good shoes and a flashlight.
These massive cannons were part of the coastal defense for Cartagena, the headquarters of the Spanish Mediterranean fleet. They are high on top of a mountain near a fort that was built in the mountain side between the bays of Mazarron and Cartagena.
