Top Quality Offerings of Rota

By Frederick Pollard Subscribe to RSS | June 25th 2012 | Views:

Rota is favored as a tranquil holiday resort that is situated near Cadiz. Specifically, Rota lies in Cadiz Bay which offers many wonderful beaches. Tourists flock to Rota to enjoy the clean and soft sandy beaches every year but they get more than they bargain for with the numerous impressive monuments in Rota.

Tourists are also captured by the town's beauty while being caught up in the local festivals that are frequently celebrated throughout the year. Rota celebrates more festivals in a year compared to any other Spanish towns.

Part of Cadiz

Rota is located very close to Cadiz which in turn lies on the mid-section of the bay in a peninsula. The odd coastline causes the silvery Atlantic Ocean waters to wash up onto Rota's shores to form a lovely scene.

The strategic location of Rota draws many to its shore every year. The fine sandy beaches and silvery warm waters offer many water sports that keep the tourists thrilled and occupied. There is never a dull moment in Rota with the many things to check out.


It was the Phoenicians who founded Rota; this town has been inhabited since the Bronze Age from the evidence found in the necropolis. The Romans conquered it shortly before the Moors took over to make it a fortress town. Rota was used to defend against any attacks from the Normans.

Rota was constantly fought over by many brave warriors throughout the ages due to the strategic location at the Bay of Cadiz.

Rota Today

Rota is very peaceful today with booming tourism and fishing industries. There is a Naval Base guarding the town and its surroundings at the Bay with a big marina situated next to a fishing port. This port is active with fishermen carrying on with their livelihood activities today.

The Old Town of Rota houses an Arabian fortress called Castillo de Luna which functions as the local Tourist Information Office.

There are still many ancient church remnants around Rota with some dating back as far as 15th century or 16th century. Some sports beautiful Gothic façade and interior artwork. Tourists can enjoy the many ancient palaces and churches with a lot of interesting ancient architecture visible. The old town wall has been well conserved till this day.

Top Quality

Rota's old town goes directly to its famous Playa de la Costilla beach which was awarded a blue flag status for excellence in quality. The golden sandy beach with clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean draws many tourists here.

It is thumbs up all the way for Rota by tourists for its excellent security, cleanliness, information services, accessibility, leisure offerings and eco-friendly approach.
