The castle is located at the mouth of the Fuengirola river as it merges with the Mediterranean sea making the area of significant strategic importance The first recording of the region show that it was originally inhabited by Phoenicians who were mainly known as traders and the river and sea access made this spot ideal for their ships to transport goods far and wide. The military might of Rome was next to follow and built fortifications that were expanded upon from the 1st Century Ad through to the 10th Century AD. The longest established occupants were the Moors who took possession and turned the Roman fortifications into the main castle seen today.
