Maro Tower: is a monument of Arab origin from which the visitors can see the entire coast around the town of Nerja. Its objective was to guard the coast and send signals to other towers to protect them from possible attacks – such as the tower Maccaca that can be seen in one of the coves of Punta Lara beach. Currently it offers a beautiful sight not only of the Natural Park of Maro-Cerro Gordo where it is located, but also of the whole area.
