Almuñecar Rosario de la Aurora
Andalucia
20th-24th December
 The town celebrates the Rosario de la Aurora in which daily from 6pm the procession leaves the Herradura Church and makes its way around the town in an hour-long procession by hundreds of inhabitants singing songs accompanied by musical instruments. This is followed by Mass in the Church. The origins of this annual celebration go back several hundred years.

Although at first sight Almunecar looks like a busy holiday town, it has the heart of an old Andalucian pueblo. You will be surprised when you come across the hilly narrow streets of the old town. Explore this area and seek out some good tapas bars, bodegas and restaurants - you'll have a huge choice, naturally with lots of sea food available. Visit the food market in the mornings to buy fresh fish, meat, fruits and vegetables. There is a great selection. See the remains of the fish-salting factory and wander through the botanical gardens. There is a jazz festival held there in July of every year. Young children will enjoy visiting the bird park, Loro Sexi, which you could combine with a visit to the castle and museum. On Friday mornings there is a great outdoor market good for inexpensive clothes, shoes and local products. There is also a water park in Almunecar. There are 3 or 4 places to enjoy flamenco music and dancing.


Outside of the town, you can travel up Almunecar's tropical valley, following Rio Verde. This is called the Carretera of the Cabras or the highway of the mountain goats. This leads to the Sierra Chaparral, passing through Jete, Otívar and Lentejí and offers some magnificent scenery. You can eat game up there in the mountains. Carry on to the hot springs at Alhama and return via Vélez Malaga. By now you'll probably be out of time and energy, but you can always return another day to explore this pleasant local town. Between here and the coastal resort of Torre del Mar, you'll come across El Ingenio shopping centre, with 12 screen cinema complex, trendy snack bars and shops and a huge hypermarket.

The Peña Escrita National Park, high in the hills, is reached by following the Rio Seco. Here are more excellent views and opportunities for hiking or horse-riding. Riding is also available beside the Hotel Taramay and the Hotel Salobrena.
 
 
 

 

Almuñecar, overlooking the crystal-clear and calm Mediterranean, is considered one of the prettiest and most picturesque spots of the "Tropical Coast of Granada", - a mountain landscape rolling down to the sea where avocados, custard apples, mangos, papayas, midyears, bananas and guayabas grow.



AVERAGE TEMPERATURES - 18ºC in winter and 25ºC in summer.

WATER TEMPERATURES - 15ºC in winter and 23ºC in summer.

DISTANCES - 76 Km from Granada and 85 Km from Málaga.

Everything seems easy and easy going in this white town plenty of character and overflowing with humanity.

The heart of the old town is laid out with parallel streets radiating from the plateau at the top of the hill on which the city was built. Once, this hill was an island surrounded by the sea and by the two estuaries of its rivers, natural harbours of important strategic value
