WHAT TO SEE IN ALMUÑECAR

Arc de Triomphe "Paseo Blas Infante"

The city gate is also considered. It was built as a tribute to the politician Blas Infante (known as the Father of Andalusian Nationalism), and its three arches symbolize the three cultures that have happened in Almuñécar over the centuries (Roman, Muslim and Christian).

Roman aqueduct of Sexi

Data from the 1st century AD C. Of this aqueduct of 7 km several sections in the whole city are conserved, and it was used to take the water of the rivers Green and Dry to the fields of tropical fruits of Almuñécar.

Church of the Incarnation

From 1600. Designed by the architect Juan de Herrera, this church is the first Baroque-style temple in the province of Granada. Its visigothic carving of the Virgen de la Antigua, patron of Almuñécar, is one of its main attractions.

Archaeological Museum Cave of the Seven Palaces.

This museum is located in the basements of the ancient Roman temple of Minerva.

San Miguel Castle

Fortress of the Arab era that was subsequently rebuilt in the times of the kings Fernando the Catholic and Carlos V. Later, it was ruined by a bombing during the war of independence against the French and even became a cemetery until the middle of the 20th century. In the last ten years, the castle has been completely renovated and now has several exhibition halls.

El Majuelo Botanical Park

Located at the foot of the castle. Favorable weather conditions have allowed the creation of this park, which hosts species from New Zealand, Africa, the Philippines and Central and South America.

Monument to Abderramán I

The monument is dedicated to Prince Omeya and the landing in the lands of Almuñécar before the foundation of the Caliphate of Cordoba.

Four kilometers from the town center of Almuñécar we find one of the most picturesque bays in southern Spain. Protected by its two flanks by the hills of La Punta de la Mona and Cerro Gordo, it is characterized by its recent development of water sports such as scuba diving. Urban beach with family atmosphere. It is very well equipped and has a high level of services.
