More information about Mojacar, Carboneras and Garrucha

Carboneras lies at the foot of the mountains Sierra Cabrera, directly at the sea, with a beach of 14 kilometres long. At the same time, it is the eastern entrance to the Natural Park Cabo de Gata – Nijar and 78% of its territory lies inside this Natural Park. It still keeps the charms of a typical fishermen village and nearby we can see the rough and arid landscapes as well as the green riverbeds and regions where there used to be agriculture. Carboneras is famous for its Beach of the Dead and the Festivities of Moors and Christians. Nearby we can find the largest desalination installation of Europe.

Mojacar is one of the most charming villages on the east coast of Almeria. The popular architecture of white houses, the beaches and the environment are the best publicity for this little village. Mojacar lies on a hill at the foothills of Sierra Cabrera. The village centre is of Arabian origin and still keeps its peculiar structure of terraces, small streets and typical corners. At the foot of the village lies a strip of more than 5 kilometres of beautiful beaches.

The Moorish Fountain with twelve springs, at the foot of the village, the fortress-church of Santa Maria, built as from the middle of the 16th century onwards, the water-reservoir of the old Nasrid Castle, the Gate of Luciana and the Gate of the City (which leads to one of the most beautiful corners of the village) are worthwhile to be visited. It is difficult to indicate where to look, as in Mojacar you will find one beautiful corner after the other. There is no other advice then to wander through the little streets, where you will always find something to admire.

Garrucha is the fishermen village par excellence of the Levante Almeriense, as well as a touristic centre, which is perfectly capable of combining the typical structure of the village with beautiful beaches, the marina, an exquisite gastronomy based on fish from the area and all the necessary services to enjoy a pleasant holiday. During the 19th century it was an important industrial region, and in memory to the mining a Chimney, an old foundry. Everything smells after sea: from the old salt mines or Afoli, from the period of Al Andalus, nowadays the Town Hall, to the Castle of Jesus of Nazareth or “Escobetas”, built during the government of Charles III to the defend the coast, of course with a splendid view over the Mediterranean Sea.
