The name of the village of Guardias Viejas (The Old Guard) goes back to the 15th century when watchtowers protected the coast from pirate attacks. Guardias Viejas is a neighbourhood of the municipality of El Ejido and houses just over 500 people. It has a rich history. Along the road from Guardias Viejas to Almerimar a port was situated there in the first century, from which olive oil, wine and brine (salt) was exported to Rome. The port became silted up; leaving a long sandy beach was created. In the Middle Ages, a square tower was built to guard the coast, which was later rebuilt into the castle. After the restoration in the 80s, there is a permanent exhibition of clothes and weapons of the Napoleonic era. In the summer there are music and theatre performances. In the first century the Romans built also medicinal baths in the region. These Roman baths was widely used by people seeking salvation for their illnesses. Every year, on July 25, they celebrate the region's patron saint's feast day. The tourist resort Almerimar (7km) is a small paradise on the Spanish coast.
