The Castillo de San Fernando
The Castillo de San Fernando is counterpart of the Castillo de Santa Barbara, built on Tossal hill in the beginning of the 19th century as a defence against French advances. While Castillo de San Fernando turned out to be less than useful as a military fortification, it does make an excellent tourist trap.

Constructed over the ruins of a former Moorish mosque, it has a richly decorated Baroque façade. Of note is the image of the virgin by sculptor Juan Bautista Borja and 18th century Rococo main altar. There are also a variety of objets d'art dating back to the 15th century.
With the sea right on your doorstep, there's never been a better time to go diving. There are several dive schools close to each beach, and lessons can be booked through your hotel.
