In the Playazo de Rodalquilar, next to the one in the s. XVIII was called Playa de los Castillejos, there is a battery for four cannons that watches over the coastline between Cerrico Romero and San Pedro Cove, whose fortress crossed the fire of its artillery. Its origin dates back to the regulation of 1764 that ordered its construction. This battery was projected by José Crame, who evaluated its cost in 200,000 reales de vellón, being financed by José Arias.
It was built by order of Calos III in the eighteenth century to protect the small port near the lookout tower of Los Alumbres (s.XVI), which served to control possible invasions to the lead and gold mines of the town. Its conservation status is good and it is privately owned.
The battery of San Ramón, battered during the War of Independence, was occupied alternately by people without shelter and by the police bodies for the surveillance of the coast, until in 1875 it was alienated by the State, acquiring a private one for 1500 pesetas.
