The tower of Maro is one of many similar towers of the historic coastal defence system. From here there are incredible views and you can enjoy a pleasant walk with stunning views.

The aqueduct of Maro, also called Puente del Aguila (eagle bridge) is a beautiful piece of engineering work, erected at the end of the nineteenth century, this aqueduct was built to transport water from a spring in Maro to the San Joaquín de Maro sugar factory. Today this factory is closed but the aqueduct continues to be used by the local communal irrigators. The aqueduct can easily be seen from the coastal N-340, close to the Nerja caves.
