What's Rota Like?
From the Bronze age, to the Phoenicians, to the Romans, and through today, many civilizations have been drawn to the area where Rota now stands. And after standing along the Chorrillo and Rompidillo beaches, one can certainly see why. The most popular attractions are a pair of beaches on the Bay of Cadiz. These two beaches, the Chorillo and Rompidillo beaches are popular for their warm water and fair weather. You can venture to the nearby Playa de la Costilla if you wish, but expect the water to be a bit cooler. Within the city is an array of buildings dating back hundreds of years. The Castillo de Luna is a castle built back in the 13th century. The ground floor is currently open to visitors free of charge. The rest of the castle holds the town's city hall and is not accessible.
