The Andalucia region
Almunecar is the principle town on the Costa Tropical. This relatively unknown stretch of Spain's southern coastline belongs to the Granada Province of Andalucia. It lies between the more populous Costa Del Sol to the West and Almeria to the East. The Costa Tropical has a special geography and climate unlike any other coastline in southern Spain. Rugged hills thrust up steeply from valley floors or plunge into the sea.
Granada with its World Heritage Alhambra Palace lies about an hour's drive away, Cordoba and Sevilla with their historic monuments about three hours drive.
Almunecar and its handsome Moorish castle sit on a hill between two rivers. Beaches, restaurants, watersport activities, together with sports as diverse as paragliding and horse riding are to be found within easy reach. Cultural activities, including Jazz festivals and art exhibitions, are staged at various times of the year.
The town has medieval steep winding streets that lead to the Plaza de ConstituciÃ³n, where the Town Hall stands, and onto the highest old quarter called Barrio San Miguel where the castle is situated. Most of this area is pedestrianised and residential. Geranium-filled balconies and small sunny plazas line the labryinth of narrow passageways.
There is a good transport system within the town and also to the major towns in the area.
