Sightseeing in Isla Canela - what to see. Complete travel guide

canela junio 159 The charming small island of Isla Canela has traditionally attracted fans of beach recreation. Indeed, it has an excellent infrastructure for trouble-free beach relaxation and all kinds of water sports.

Perhaps, Obelisco Campo de Canela is the main landmark of the small tourist town in the south of Spain. Rising proudly above Estero de Canela, the obelisk is a beautiful landmark that never … Open
Torre Canela is the doubtless symbol of the island. It is an old watchtower that was initially built to protect the coast from pirate invasions. This protective facility was built by the order of King Philip III. During an excursion to the tower, vacationers will notice that Torre Canela is located quite far from the coast. There is an explanation for this fact. The coastline has changed drastically within the last 200 years, so the tower that once was near the waterline is now at a significant distance from it.
There are many unique archaeological areas on the island. In Punta del Moral, tourists can explore the ruins of a Roman mausoleum. It was built yet in the 4th century. The mausoleum is quite a large architectural complex, many fragments of which are still covered with soil. During an excursion here, tourists can see fragments of the surviving walls. This landmark became available to tourists not long ago, in 1981. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

There are also interesting religious landmarks on the island. It is possible to see an old church in virtually every settlement of the island. Nuestra Senora del Carmen is one of the most attractive churches of the area. It is a gorgeous landmark that dates back to the 19th century. The church is located in a small resort settlement that was also named after its patron saint. The church is located in an incredibly attractive place, on the bank of the Guadiana River. Inside, tourists will see many precious artifacts, including an old sculpture of the patron saint. Travelers who visit the island during one of the major religious holidays can participate in very interesting events.
Cumulus over Isla Canela #1 Among other landmarks of the island, it would be a mistake not to mention Puerto Deportivo Marina Isla Canela. It is a wonderful destination for a stroll. Tourists can admire gorgeous white yachts here, visit popular restaurants, and the biggest shopping center on the island. Not far from the port, there are many playgrounds and attractions for children. Moreover, there is a wonderful infrastructure for different sports.
