This seafaring town is situated very near the Guadalquivir and Doñana’s mouth. The monuments that constitute the town's heritage are a faithful reflection of its true historical significance, as its origins go back as far as the Roman Empire.

It is totally battlemented, has ogival windows and a square tower.
The most emblematic building is, undoubtedly, the Regla Sanctuary, which breathes a Neo-Gothic air. The place of worship, which stands on an old fortress and in current times belongs to the Franciscans, houses the patron of Chipiona.
