Castillo de Sohail

Castillo de Sohail
  • Train

The Castillo de Sohail is located at the very mouth of the Fuengirola River, on a small isolated hill which ascends to 38 metres above sea level. The magnificent geographical conditions of this location permitted, from ancient times, the continued population of its hillsides by Punic and Roman settlements. In the 12th century, the Almoravids erected a defensive enclosure of irregular shape and in 1485 the Castillo de Sohail is occupied by the Christian army. Nowadays, the Castillo de Sohail is the place where people from Fuengirola can meet their history. Source: costadelsol.beaching.com
