Sites of Interest: (Approximate distances from the Hotel Fuerte Conil–Costa Luz)
Puerta de la Villa (The Town Gate) (10 minutes on foot)
The archway of the Town Gate leads to the old walled area that has become one of the most symbolic sites of the town. It takes us to the narrow medieval lanes where truly indigenous traditions survive.
Santa Catalina Church (15 minutes on foot)
Dating from the 16th century and rebuilt in the 19th century with a curious combination of styles, today the Church presides over the square and gardens of the same name. At present it is used as an exhibition hall.
