The Leuchtturm von Cabo de Gata is a meeting point for the many tourists who come to the Naturpark every year. Built in 1863, it was built in the central courtyard of the Kastell de San Francisco de Paula. It was built in the first half of the 18th century, during the reign of Philip V, for the defense of the Küste von the kingdom of Granada. From this castle the only remnant left is the base wall.

Located in the one called by the Romans "promontorius charidemi". It could be translated as "promontory of the Agates". This is due to semi-precious stones that can be found in its surroundings.
