Breña y Marismas de Barbate Natural Park - Things to see

Torre de Meca, a 15th-century watchtower, was built as part of a coastal defensive system to warn of a Berber pirate invasion. Watchkeepers would either light a fire or send smoke signals to neighbouring towers to communicate danger. Just outside of Caños de Meca, there is footpath that leads to it; see our section on walks.

Torre del Tajo is a 16th-century watchtower, which was constructed the same reason as the Torre de Meca. It perched on 100m-high cliffs between Barbate and Caños de Meca and can be reached by two walks. At 13m high, it is the second tallest in Cadiz province.
