Natural Park of la Breña

One cannot imagine the existence of Caños de Meca without the presence of the Natural Park of la Breña,with its magnificent mountains protecting us from the winds. This enables the persistence of our well known good climatology, especially when the strong “Levante wind“ blows over the region.

La Breña is a relatively recent forest; it was originally made of a meadow and sand dunes.

At the end of the nineteenth century, the local society “Amigos del país“ was constituted with the proposal of reforesting pinion pine trees.

Our current Park was formed throughout the time by the action of several reforestations.

“La Breña“ Cliffs highest peak is 100 tall. This is the place where the Tower of Tajo is located.

These actively eroding Cliffs usually become big blocks which brake and fall into the sea. This phenomenon has favoured the existence of a number of rocks which propitiates the appearance of a rich Marine habitat.



Tower of Tajo

This is one of the places which you cannot miss when visiting the area. After the Re-conquest period, the Duke of Medina Sidonia ordered to build watchtowers which warned local inhabitants from the arrival of the Moorish Corsairs.

This a 14 meter tall structure strategically located at the border of the Cliffs, which ensures a perfect view from the space between the towers of Barbate and Trafalgar. Different signals such as Fire, Smoke or shots, were then used to prevent the people living on the coast, from eventual dangers.



Cape Trafalgar

This is a place full of history. During the roman times there was here a Temple dedicated to the Divinity June.

The term Trafalgar is of Arabic origin and it means “rise of mountains“.

The Arabs built a watchtower in this place during the IX century, whose remainders have been later used to build the current lighthouse.

This was also the scene for the Battle of Trafagar, an 1805 naval battle in which the Royal Navy destroyed Napoleon's combined Spanish and French fleet
