What to see in Los Alcázares

Los Alcázares has a history of over 2,000 years which goes back to Roman times, whose heritage is clear to see in the Roman baths of Los Diegos. The name ‘Los Alcázares’ comes from the Arabic al-qasr, which means palace or fortress, and this is because, during Muslim times, rich Arab families chose this place as their holiday destination, something people are still doing today by choosing hotels in Los Alcázares to enjoy its healing waters.

At the end of the Middle Ages and in the early Modern Age, after Christian repopulation, Los Alcázares became a strategic location for commerce, which lead to the construction of the towers of Rame, Blanca, Negro, Saavedra and Silva to defend the city against Berber pirate attacks.

Later on, in the early Nineteenth century, Los Alcázares was once again full of holiday homes owned by rich families and local farmers who came here to enjoy the popular novenarios, nine baths with therapeutic waters to rejuvenate the body. This lead to the construction of a spa in 1904, La Encarnación, a building which currently maintains its original spirit from the start of the past century.

This commercial and demographic development prompted the construction in 1915 of a seaplane air base for the Spanish Army, which is still used today after being renovated by the army itself.

Furthermore, all of these events sparked a spirit of political independence in Los Alcázares, which up until then depended on the city councils of Torre Pacheco and San Javier. In the end, Los Alcázares got its independent status and its own city council in October 1983, a date which has become the celebration of Día del Caldero (Day of Caldero), a tradition in which different groups congregate on the beach to prepare this traditional dish of fish and rice that all visitors must not forget to try.

What to do in Los Alcázares

The more than four miles of fantastic beaches in Los Alcázares represent the largest outdoor spa thanks to its medicinal waters. The high concentration of salts and iodine, shallow sea depth and no waves make hotels in Los Alcázares an ideal choice for a fantastic family holiday.

Also, the coast is a great place to practice water sports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking and sailing from its Nautical Station. In fact, Los Alcázares is home to the Infanta Cristina High Performance Centre (Centro de Alto Rendimiento – CAR) for sportsmen and women, sports clubs and federations. Of course, golf is the main sport in this region and you can play it in one of the many fantastic courses in the area.

On the other hand, the Municipal Aviation Museum shows visitors miniature models of old planes as well as military items used throughout the history of Spanish military aviation.

Another fantastic option is to go on a boat tour around the islands of Mar Menor, where you will be able to discover its beaches and enjoy beautiful sunsets with a soft breeze caressing your face.

In terms of protected spaces, between Los Alcázares and Santiago de la Ribera you can find La Hita, a wild beach with abandoned salt marshes, rich coastal vegetation and small wetlands which are home to birds such as the little tern and the black-winged stilt.

During Holy Week, locals remember the invasions of Mar Menor by Berber pirates between the Fifteenth and Seventeenth centuries. They recreate the scenario of pirates landing on the beaches and the town hosts a medieval market full of characters from back in time.

Another of the most important local festivals takes place in the month of August, the International Week of Garden and Sea, declared an event of Regional Tourist Interest in which eight vegetable-growing groups show their folklore, culture and gastronomy.
