We let you discover the numerous other good and friendly places you can find in Almuñecar .

Almuñecar was founded by the Phoenicians, about 3000 years ago. It is on the Costa Tropical, between Costa del Sol and Costa de Almeria. This relatively unknown stretch of Spain's southern coastline belongs to Granada province in Andalucia.
The montains of the Sierra Nevada that can be seen from the sea, provide a natural barrier from harsh nothern winds. Thanks to that barrier, the landscape is tropical, endowed with exotic vegetation and fertile plains laid open to the sea. Temperatures are ranging from 18° to 25° during the year.
The climat allows the cultivation of subtropical fruits such as mango, papaya, chirimoya, avocado, etc.

There are many places you can visit from there: Las Alpujarras, the area where the muslims retreated after Boabdil lost Granada to the Christian troops of Isabel la Catolica. There, you can walk around the whitewashed houses of the villages on steep streets and have a delicious lunch of patatas a la pobre. You can of course take a trip to Granada and the Alhambra. But also to the Albaïcin, the cathedral, el coral del carbon, the old jewish streets, etc. Granada is a beautiful town. You can also go to Frijiliana and taste its delicious wine or drive to Granada on the old road that takes you through many different landscapes up to the Granadan plain. Do not forget to go to Salobreña and walk around the village up to the castle. The view is beautiful from there.
