El Rompido Lighthouses (2 min on foot)
Two lighthouses watch over this unparalleled location although only one is still in use. Their lights have always guided fishermen on the Atlantic and are a notable symbol of this fishing village.
Nuestra Señora de Consolación Chapel (6 min on foot)
Located on the outskirts of the village, this chapel is an example of Andalucian baroque architecture with Mudejar contributions. The architectural simplicity acquires magical proportions from the interplay of straight lines and subtle curves. The chapel houses the Virgen de la Consolación (Our Lady of Consolation), an image to which the people of Cartaya are very devoted.
