In 1983, during the demolition of the old jail to make way for what would be the new Hotel Los Cantaros ***, a series of 17th century urns were uncovered. The majority of these are now housed in the Municipal Museum, with a few left on exhibition in the hotel lounge as a testament to the find.
The redesigned Plaza de la Carcel plays host a well maintained fountain, dating back to 1839, that was one of several dispersed throughout the town to provide water to the townsfolk. Boasting four taps, the main construction was built from a variety of materials from Tarifa, Algeciras, Seville and the San Cristobal sierra.
