Ítrabo has a population of around 1500 many of whom are employed in agriculture in the area, in particular the cultivation of Tomatoes, Avocados, Almonds, Grapes, Nisperos (Loquats) and Chiramoyas (custard apples). The village has as an unmistakably north-African feel with its flat roofed, white washed houses that huddle onto the hillside - the sleeping giant known locally as Picacho.
There are two buses daily to Salobrena and Motril where you can get further connections to Almunecar, Granada and Malaga. If you enjoy walking there are some great hikes and mountain bike paths on old mule tracks through the hills, with fantastic coastal and mountain views.

In addition to festivals during August and February, Ítrabo also celebrates Culture week each April; an event that includes a wine festival in which local wines and foods are enjoyed.

The most important historical site in Ítrabo is the main church, la Iglesia de 'Nuestra Señoradel Carmen' and the Hermitage of the 'Virgen de la Salud'. Built in the 17th Century, the church and hermitage house the image of the saint which is paraded through the village during festivals. Also of note is the town's pretty square, and public laundry wash place and it is still used as a meeting place by many residents. The hills surrounding Itrabo provide numerous walking opportunities with stunning views of the surrounding countryside and coast. Many of the paths are ancient mule tracks from the moorish period, still used by farmers and mules to access their terraces of fruit and olives to this very day.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region


The Costa Tropical is the stretch of coastline in the province of Granada. It lies between the Costa del Sol and the Costa Almeria and was previously part of the Costa del Sol. The name Costa Tropical comes from the sub-tropical climate that favours the cultivation of exotic crops such as avocados and mangos. With warm winters and long hot summers, the average year round temperature is 20°C.

It is a picturesque region with mountains running down to the sea. The coastline stretches for 19 km with no less than 26 different beaches. Some of these beaches have wide stretches of sand, others are delightful sheltered coves or small rocky bays only accessible by steep tracks.

The Tropical Coast has a wealth of history to offer the visitor and far from being overcrowded with tourists, has managed to retain its Spanish character. Dotted along the coast are towers and fortresses that once served as watch posts during the Arab occupation.

Almuñecar, the capital town of the Costa Tropical, is the most Spanish of all the towns in the region and many Spaniards spend their summer holidays here. The Phoenicians, who named it Sexi, founded the town 3,000 years ago and are one civilisation among the many that have given the town its rich, historical heritage.

Salobreña is a picturesque white village, topped by a Moorish castle, that clings to a large rock and spills down towards the shore. The last sugar cane plantations in Europe surround the town. It is 45 minutes from Granada and about one hour from the Sierra Nevada mountains. It has 6,000 years of history including a 10th century Moorish castle.

An hour away is the Capital of the región, Granada with the famous Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace, It is the most renowned building of the Andalusian Islamic historical legacy with its many cultural attractions that make Granada a popular destination among the touristic cities of Spain. The Almohad influence on architecture is preserved in the area of the city called the Albaicín with its fine examples of Moorish and Morisco construction.

Almunecar

Almuñécar has plenty of amenities and many beautiful beaches with a variety of water sports (windsurfing, water-skiing, para-skiing, jet-skis, sailing, diving) and other sports (tennis, squash, horse riding, golf, hiking, mountaineering, mountain biking, fishing, karting)

There are an abundance of restaurants and bars (well known for their delicious free tapas), the famous Venta Luciano flamenco restaurant on the outskirts of towan, an impressive Aqua park with plenty of attractions for the whole family to have a fun day,out, The Aquarium, night clubs, bars, cinema (casa de cultura and shops. The old town is a pretty zig zag of old lanes with boutique and artisan style shops and the wonderful Town Hall Square with it's enormous palm trees and cafes. The wonderful Kalibia Square is worth a stop for an early evening or late evening drink. It really gets going around midnight in the summer months, where the locals sit and enjoy the ambience with a drink and a tapa.

Every Friday there is a large outdoor market selling many products and on a Sunday, the local Rastro .. second hand market which is worth a mooch around.

In August, the Feria comes to town for two weeks offering a large fairground in the middle of town with music and entertainment. This culminates in the night of the 15th when the statue of the Virgen is taken in a procession from the church to the seafront and put on a boat which leaves from San Cristóbal beach. It then makes the journey around the rocks to the main beach, accompanied by dozens of boats.

When the Virgin's boat passes the rocks in front of the town, aimed to be about 23.00 hr, the half-hour fireworks spectacular begins. It is truly a grand affair with pyrotechnic displays emanating from the castle, Peñón del Santo (Cross) and rocks, beach and even from the wáter and all set to music.

Once back on dry land, the procession takes the Virgin back to the church while, for everyone else, the party continues until late.
