Excavation work is under way on the San Luis castle in Estepona old town as the town hall aims to reclaim the fortress as a new cultural space.

The works, which have already unearthed a number of artefacts from Roman times, are expected to take two months.

Once complete, the town hall will present its plans for a space at which "you will be able to see how the town has developed through history", according to mayor José María García Urbano.

The castle will also become a space where "conferences, concerts and shows can be organised for the enjoyment of both residents and tourists", he added on Monday.
