Castillo fortaleza de Santa Pola
 
 
The castle of Santa Pola was built in the Renaissance military style of the 16th century. When it was ready, 33 soldiers with their families moved in. Little by little, the soldiers were replaced by civilians until it came into the hands of the municipality of Santa Pola in 1859. Since then, the building has had all sorts of functions such as the Guardia Civil's hospital and headquarters. Nowadays you can step inside and outside the castle freely. Apart from the outside façade and the courtyard, there is nothing to see from the past. The buildings are now occupied by, among others, the maritime museum and the fishing museum.
