Moorish Cártama can still be seen in the town in its castle, fortress and the minaret from the old mosque. The latter is currently the bell tower of San Pedro Apóstol church. The castle sits atop a hill that affords stunning panoramic views over Vega del Guadalhorce. This strategic position meant it was one of the main defences in the province of Malaga. In 1485 it was taken by Christian troops. Over time, it has been restored so we can still enjoy it today.
