The guided routes will begin "shortly" after archaeological research, reconstruction of the walls and refurbishment of the interior space in which one million euros have been invested.

The "enhancement" of the walled city and castle of Guardamar is already a reality, according to the government team, after the investment of one million euros provided by the municipality and funds from the ERDF program through the Generalitat. The plan combines archaeological research, reconstruction of walls and conditioning of the interior space of the site declared an Asset of Cultural Interest (BIC) so that it can be "visited, known and valued even more. "There is still a lot to do, to discover and to prepare, but we have taken a very important step to place Guardamar at the forefront of historical tourism in southeastern Spain," says the heritage mayor Pilar Gay.

The councillor and the mayor, José Luis Sáez, visited the historical enclave "to know the state of the works" where they verified that "the project is executed" and has since last week a "center of interpretation and attention to the visitor".

The building is a wooden structure covered, prefabricated and reversible (prepared for change of location if necessary), about 40 square meters and its interior will be placed with illuminated panels that will explain the history of the walled city. Its location is at the current entrance to the historic enclosure coinciding with the layout of the northern wall, in a strategic place to reduce the visual impact produced by the reservoir of drinking water that was installed in the place in the 60s.

The inner platform of the enclosure is covered after the work with engravings in order to preserve the archaeological remains not yet excavated and allow public use. In addition, a series of footpaths have been fitted out with prefabricated slabs for the passage of visitors. Interior lighting systems have also been installed and the surveillance camera system has been reinforced.
