carchuna castle The villages of Torrenueva, Carchuna and Calahonda belong to Motril. All three are very tourist-orientated places and only a few kilometres east of Motril.

In Carchuna, located in the middle of an extensive alluvial plain occupied today by a plastic sea of greenhouses, there is an old castle town going back to the time of Carlos III.

Enclosed and circular, it was one of the defensive constructions that this monarch built to protect the coastal area. Carlos III, from which Carchuna receives its name, ordered its construction in 1783.

calahonda of motril Calahonda is a fishing village very close to Carchuna, in the direction of Almeria. Formerly used as a port for Motril, it has one of the best beaches in this area of the Tropical Coast, with crystal-clear waters and ample depth.

Torrenueva is another town of maritime origin unfortunately deteriorated by tourist development. It is also located near Carchuna, but in the opposite direction to Calahonda.

Torrenueva hosts a look-out tower, the New Tower or the Peseta, dating from the beginning of the sixteenth century, which has been recently renovated.
