Description

This seafaring town which saw the birth of Rocío Jurado is situated very near the Mouth of the Guadalquivir and Doñana. The monuments that constitute the town's heritage are a faithful reflection of its true historical significance, as its origins go back as far as the Roman Empire. The castle (Property of Cultural Interest) was built at the orders of Guzman el Bueno and  finished by the Ponce de León in the 14th century. It is totally battlemented, has ogival windows and a square tower.

The most emblematic building is, undoubtedly, the Regla Sanctuary, which breathes a Neo-Gothic air. The place of worship,  which stands on an old fortress and in current times belongs to the Franciscans, houses the patron of Chipiona. Worthy of mention is the imperial staircase which leads to the Mudejar cloisters dating from the 15th century, the vaulted cellars, the  walls decorated with tiles from Triana (1640), the museum and the library.

Other buildings of interest are the Church of Nuestra Señora de la O (16th-17th century), the Chapel of Cristo de la Misericordia and the Santa Clara Sanatorium (the first maritime clinic in Spain). Chipiona has been an important summer resort since the early 20th century. It still retains numerous beautiful villas which give it a very particular, special character. The Prome-nades by the Regla and Las Canteras beaches, which are busy and buzzing, are lined with pavement cafés where one can sit and enjoy the views of the sea.

Beaches

16 Km long and made up of fine white sand, the beaches are ideal for fishing and water sports. They all provide medical, security and lifeguard facilities. They have been awarded the Blue Flag of the Clean Waters of Europe. The most important ones are:
