Los Corrales de Rota

Corrals form part of the heritage of Rota, received from the Arabs that used to construct parcels in the sea formed upon perfectly mounted stones. Fish would find themselves trapped inside the stone parcels at low tide, allowing the fishermen to catch the fish with relative ease.

Corrales de Rota


Thanks to the great range of fauna, the Corrals are an ideal place to carry out a marine photography session. They also hold a great ethnological interest. Because of the unique characteristics of the Corrals, they deserve special protection. For that reason the site has been declared as a Natural Monument.
