La Rábita

Tourist information

La Rábita is a coastal town in the municipality of Albuñol. Its name comes from the construction of the Ribat, a fortress / monastery that was built here in the Arab period as a strategic point of defence to guard the coast. Around the castle the town of La Rábita grew, and in the 18th century the watchtowers including the Torre de Punta Negra, the Torre de la Rabita and the Torre Huarea were built, to expand and strengthen the town’s defence.

Currently the best preserved tower is the Torre de La Rabita, from which you can get the best views over the sea. Don’t miss the summer sunset seen from this tower.

Another attractive monument in La Rábita is the Iglesia Parroquial de Nuestra Señora de la Natividad church. Inside, on the high altar, there is a large altarpiece depicting San Isidro, San Antonio, La Virgen del Mar and San Juan, amongst others.
