Sohail Castle - Review
Located in the beautiful surroundings of Fuengirola, at a distance of about 35 kilometres from Marbella, the Sohail Castle is an imposing fortress just off the A7 motorway. It is set on a high hilltop and is surrounded by lush green lawns all around and sits right at the mouth of River Fuengirola.
The castle was built as a defensive fortress by Abd-ar-Rehman III with an aim to strengthen coastal defences. The present construction dates back to 12th century AD, built by the Almoravides. Recently restored by the Town of Fuengirola, the castle now hosts eclectic performances and concerts.
