Welcome to Ayamonte
Located on the banks of the Guadiana, bordering Portugal, Ayamonte has always been a quiet fishing village that extends its white sloping houses to the port. The Greeks baptized it with the name of Anapotaman ("on the river"), from where its present name derives. At the top of the town, on the ruins of a Roman castle, stands the Parador de Turismo, from where you can see an excellent view of the town and the mouth of the Guadiana. Among the buildings of interest are the churches of Nuestra Señora de las Angustias and San Francisco, both from the 16th century; the parish church of El Salvador, from the 15th century; and the houses of Indians. Five kilometers from the town are the Canela and Moral beaches, very popular especially in the summer.
