The Santa Pola City Council has announced the launch of a project to improve accessibility and renovate the roof of the historic Castillo Fortaleza. The project has already received approval from the Directorate General of Heritage of the Generalitat Valenciana, which is necessary for sites that are Cultural Assets.

Project objective

The main objective of the project is to restore the original appearance of the castle's roof, clean up the existing infrastructure and carry out the necessary maintenance work. As part of the first phase, it is planned to restore the historic appearance of Castillo Fortaleza by opening the blanks on the north and east wings, cleaning and strengthening the north facade and the eastern, preserving their original texture and materials.
