Eco-warriors rescue decaying castle site

CASTLE: Restoration works are long overdue.

NOW that the demolition of the Algarrobico Hotel is a sure thing, the environmental organisation Friends of the Cabo de Gata-Nijar National Park has a new mission. 

The group has sent reports to the Junta de Andalucia regional government and the Carboneras Council calling for some long overdue restoration work on the Mesa Roldan Castle, located in Carboneras.

The castle, declared a Place of Cultural Interest in 1985, is abandoned and decaying. In the reports, Friends of the Park argue that the owners must comply with conservation and maintenance regulations, and also that more historical information about the castle should be available for visitors.
