Dragut Cave

In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Barbary pirates sailed the waters of the Mediterranean terrorizing and plundering coastal populations. It was then that the myth of the pirate Dragut, lieutenant of the famous Barbaroja was born.

Cueva del pirata Dragut

The Dragut Cave is a fantastic museum dedicated to piracy and especially the famous pirate Dragut. According to legend, in 1550, the pirate attacked the town of Cullera pillaging the town and leaving hundreds of people to sell them later as slaves or collect ransom for them. They say the attack was so barbaric that the city of Cullera was, for many years, uninhabited for fear of being attacked again by the pirate Dragut.
The cave in which the prisoner exchange took place is today Cueva museo del pirata Dragut, located near the lighthouse of Cullera, in a natural setting of great beauty on the edge of the cliffs.
