It is just a short distance by car or ferry from Cadiz which lies just across the harbor. It is well worth the stop over for a day or spending a lazy weekend.
Rota has seen its fair share of occupants. From Romans to the Muslims, and finally to the Christian Crusaders who were first to call the town "Rota." The town passed hands between ruling families in the region and was able to set up a few religious orders which have since been disbanded.

The people who occupy Rota now are the throngs of beach goers and tourists through the warm months to soak up the sun and warm water at the great beaches that surround Rota.
