The railway that never was

August 25th, 2015|Categories: Mazarrón|

The Alhama/Totana to Mazarrón motorways bisect the new urbanization of Camposol a few kilometres before the Mazarrón turns. Nearby, two short walks, undertaken separately or together, show both the power of nature and man. That to the hot springs and back is perhaps around three kilometres in length and that to the La Pinilla road along the old railway track and back, a little more than eight kilometres. […]

It is said that Mazarrón has 180 archaeological sites dating from Stone Age times onwards, but it is much later – in the 4th millennium BC that things really start to become interesting with the very important remains of a Chalcolithic (Copper Age) settlement and burial in the Cabezo del Plomo south of Mazarrón, which are well worth visiting.

Watchtowers of the Mazarrón coast

November 27th, 2012|Categories: Mazarrón|

Although the final stronghold of the Moors, Granada, fell in 1492, Spain was not safe from hostile threats from North Africa. Indeed, in the next century, raids on the Murcian coastline by Berber pirates seeking goods, animals and slaves, became a constant threat and trouble. One countermeasure taken was the building of watchtowers along the coast to give advance warning of the pirates’ approach. Today, some of these towers still remain. There are four within a very short distance around Mazarrón which are well worth going to see. […]
