The Castle of San Sebastian is located at one end of La Caleta and is set on an islet which was, according to classical tradition, also home to the Temple of Chronos. The Castle was built during the early 1700s and was built to defend the north flank of the city. Within the castle walls, you will find a modern-day lighthouse which was installed in 1908. The picturesque castle along with the Caleta beach has been the setting for several films shootings. The Castle of San Sebastian was declared Monument of Cultural Interest in 1985.
