Philip II gave Don Diego López de Haro Sotomayor the title of Marquis to defend the area from pirates.
At that time the mountains surrounding the current Carboneras were abundant in trees. That is why some ovens were built, from which charcoal was obtained. And that’s why they were called Carboneras.
With the Moorish rebellion in the Alpujarras, King Abén Humeya was elected. Then in Purchena a market of slaves was established, which were transported to the coast of Almeria.
It was difficult for the Christians to prevent this trade, as there were only two castles within 100 kilometres.
Despite the death of Abén Humeya in 1571, and the surrender of the Moors. The coast was in constant danger, especially the area between Aguilas and Cabo de Gata. And towers and watchtowers were built.
But as most of the towns were far from the coast, the soldiers did not arrive in time to avoid the landing. That is why Don Diego de Haro ordered another castle to be built in El Cabezo de la Carbonera, in 1577.
Although the castle and his troops were able to defeat the daring of the pirates. Which was not enough guarantee for the safety of the coasts. Because the ships went into the most difficult points of defence.
So the garrison lived in constant alarm and unrest.
Already in 1626, in order to improve the surveillance service, the military governor of the area exposed the problem to the King. He thought of the convenience of dividing the territory into three districts.
In 1764 the coast was still suffering from corsairs, so the surveillance had to be improved by building more fortifications. That is why he built a new castle at Mesa Roldán, which was completed in 1766.
In 1813 Carboneras ceased to be a neighborhood of Sorbas and formed a new municipality. Its first town hall was created on June 1st.
With the arrival of Fernando VII, Carboneras lost its status as a Town Hall. But with the consolidation of the constitutional regime it became independent again in 1838.
During the rest of the 19th century and the first third of the 20th, Carboneras had as its first economic activity the cultivation of esparto grass. In addition to fishing which was consolidating, even to the creation of a “almadraba”.
Later, due to the lack of work, emigration left the municipality practically uninhabited. Until the mid-seventies, an industrial and productive centre was created, which included a cement factory, a thermal power station, a plasterboard factory and two fish farms. In addition, the construction of the port helped the local economy.
The climate of Carboneras is similar to the rest of the province of Almeria with hot, hot, dry and clear summers. On the other hand, the winters are long, fresh, dry, windy and partially cloudy. Moreover, during the year, the temperature generally varies from 8 °C to 29 °C and rarely falls below 5 °C or rises above 32 °C.
Without a doubt the most advisable time to visit Carboneras, for hot activities, is from the end of June to the beginning of September approximately.
The Temperature of Carboneras
The warm season is approximately 3 months, from the end of June to mid-September. At that time the average daily maximum temperature is over 26 °C. The maximum temperature is 29 degrees some days at the beginning of August.
The cool season lasts approximately 4 months, from the end of November to mid-March. During this period the average maximum daily temperature is about 18 °C.
In Carboneras, the average percentage of the sky covered with clouds varies considerably throughout the year.
The clearest time of year lasts for almost 3 months from June.
The cloudiest part of the year starts at the beginning of September until the beginning of June.
The rainy season lasts almost 8 months. Most rainy days are in late October or early November. With an average total accumulation of 23 millimetres
During the summer the rains are from very scarce to totally null.
In addition there are more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, because the province of Almeria is the sunniest place in Europe.
Carboneras is a village on the Almeria Coast which has more than fourteen kilometres of beaches. Among which we can highlight some urban as those of:
- El Lancón
- The Barquicos
- and Los Cocones,
Moreover, from all of them you can see clearly: the Island of San Andrés, a small rocky island of 1.5 hectares whose line in the horizon resembles that of a whale. It has been considered a Natural Monument since 2003.
But besides the urban beaches, in Carboneras there are a series of virgin beaches. At the mouth of the river Alías, on the coast of Carboneras and always within the natural park of Cabo de Gata-Níjar.
Among those that stand out:
- the Corral beach
- the 3 km long Algarrobico beach, which witnessed the shooting of the film Lawrence of Arabia. It also became famous because the popularly known “Hotel El Algarrobico” was left half-built there in 2003. From the developer Azata del Sol. Because it provoked a strong opposition and mobilization due to its illegality for not complying with the Coastal Law. The case had a great media impact and because of its size it has been used by the media as a symbol of the poor conservation of the Spanish coast.
Furthermore, although it is a virgin beach, thanks to the proximity of the beach to the town centre it has an average occupation.
- the beach of the Dead, with rocky formations of volcanic nature shaped by the wind and the sea. The beach of the dead is named after the ancient custom of the inhabitants of the area to wait for the Mediterranean currents to carry the bodies of fishermen and shipwrecked people into the sea. This beach was considered the best beach in Spain by the digital magazine 20 minutos en 2.007.
