Description

Evidence of Phoenician presence is revealed by the numerous archaeological remains that have been discovered in the area, including a brass coin exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Cadiz or the remains of a necropolis at La Huerta del Sol. It was port of undeniable importance during Roman and Visigoth times. In spite of its strong tourist atmosphere, this white Moorish-style town has successfully retained the flavour and charm of a typical seafaring town.

Of the medieval fortifications, the town preserves canvases from its ramparts at the 16th century Puerta de la Villa, as well as a bastion used to fortify these walls. The coastal Watchtowers at Roche, Puerco and Castilnovo (16th-17th
Centuries) were used to sight attacking pirates or invaders. And, lastly, the Guzmán Tower, built in the 14th and 15th  Centuries, was part of the old castle and served as the nucleus around which the town was built.

The Santa Catalina Parish Church and the Town Hall building are situated in Plaza del Castillo. Other noteworthy monuments include the Misericordia Hospital, the Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno Hermitage (the town's patron saint), the Nuestra Señora de las Virtudes Convent and the Espíritu Santo Shrine.

Visitors should also try to visit the "Museo de Raíces Conileñas" and attend the fascinating fish auctions at the fish market in the town's fishing port.

The municipality of Conil has valuable natural spaces, the most noteworthy being the Roche and El Colorado Pine Forests.  These are home to numerous endangered species, including a large population of coastal junipers, or the "fartet" (Aphanius iberus), a small hermaphrodite fish found in the River Roche.

Beaches

All types of water sports are available off Conil's magnificent beaches. The most important are:

- The Bateles Beach (in the town).
- The Fontanilla Beach .
- La Fuente del Gallo.
- The Beach at Roche and its coves (where large waves form that are ideal for surfing).
 
Conil's 14 km of coastline has fine white sand beaches for all tastes, with transparent waters ideal for practising all kinds of  water sports in a spectacularly beautiful setting. The long Castilnovo beach lies on the left as you approach the town. Other  beaches on that side of Conil are Los Bateles (which has numerous facilities, services, restaurants and bars), La Fontanilla,  El Roqueo and Fuente del Gallo, which are more secluded and inviting. The municipality
also boasts many charming, paradisiacal coves at the foot of imposing cliffs.
 
Some of the most beautiful coves can be found at Camacho, Pitones, Melchor, Cala del Aceite, El Frailecillo, El Aspero or Cala Encendida.
