In 1985 it was declared Bien de Interés Cultural by UNESCO. In 1997 a reconstruction that ended in 2003 began, and since then, the distribution of the castle is divided into three areas: El Patio del Castillo where the The Castillo de Santa Ana is the main attraction of Roquetas and attracts many tourists.Interpretation Centre is, the first floor where you can access theBaluarte de Artilleríaand the second floor where you can visit the battlements and enjoy the views.
The defensive towers of the castle, facing the sea, offer exceptional views and are another attraction of this historic building that is a part of a cultural triangle that the city wanted to have in this area of the municipality, wherewe also find an auditorium outdoors and the Faro.
