"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea. I think (...) it's because we all came from the sea... And when we go back to the sea...  we are going back from whence we came." John F. Kennedy

Sea Museum in Santa Pola

Santa Pola

This little museum is an excellent option to learn about the close relationship between the inhabitants of Santa Pola and the Sea.

The museum is located in the town’s Castle-Fortress and is divided into three sections:

1. History and Archaeology (South Wing Access): it focuses on the history of the municipality and its castle-fortress

2. Ethnography of the Sea and Fisheries (North Wing Access): The sea as a setting, the seaman in the leading role and the ship as a tool.

3. Ethnography of the Sea and Fisheries (North Wing Access): Five rooms dedicated to Music in Santa Pola and the archaeological remains of the Cap de l’Aljub Tower, the predecessor of the current Castle-Fortress. This tower, built in the 14th century, generated around it a farmhouse with a church, a bread oven and some shops to supply the soldiers and sailors, as well as to store and protect the goods against theft and inclement weather.
