The many different peoples that populated Conil left
manifest signs of their presence. The remains of the
Phoenician necropolis in the Huerta del Sol and the
coins and tombstones from the Roman period found in
the area bear witness to this. Admirable paintings
and religious images are sheltered within religious
buildings such as the former convent of la Victoria
or Parish of Santa Catalina, the Church of the Misericordia,
the chapel of Espiritu Santo or the hermitage of Nuestro
Padre Jesús Nazareno.
Well worth a visit are the Puerta de la Villa (gate to the city) which is a remant of the ancient enclosure of the town, The Torre de Guzmán for which the town was named for centuries, and the nobles' masions such as that of the Conde de las Cinco Torres. The scattered watchtowers that were built during the Middle Ages in this important border area should not be overlooked for a visit.
