Location description from owner
The Andalucia region
Almeria is well known for its Moorish castle the Alcazaba of Almeria, second largest among the muslim fortresses of Andalusia, after the Alhambra.
Almeria has a subtropical climate the only European city of this type with the average temperature above 19 deg C.
Due to the surrounding arid landscape, numerous spaghetti westerns were filmed there and still today the sets remain for visitors to go and see.
Cabo de Gata is one of Spains jewels being one of largest, most beautiful and ecologically rich coasts of the Western Mediterranean sea
Mojacar is often called the corner of enchantment, it consists of a hilltop village and a beach resort, and is one of the most beguiling and captivating corners of Spain.
Sunshine in the Spanish mountains - what makes Mojacar so special?
Nestled in the mountains of the Sierra Cabrera overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the town of Mojacar really does feel like a fairy-tale setting, with its enchanting whitewashed buildings and Moorish architecture giving it a timeless quality. It has recently been voted one of Spain's prettiest villages. The combination of all these things makes it the perfect place for a Spanish holiday, offering history and culture as well as rugged adventure.
Mojacar can be found in the Andalusian province of Almeria, which is also home to one of Europe's only deserts. It therefore goes without saying that sunshine is pretty much guaranteed, with the area receiving around 320 sunny days a year. In this brief guide we'll give you the low-down on what makes the town and the surrounding area so special.
The town itself
Andalusia is perhaps the most interesting region in Spain in terms of culture and history, as it's where the Moorish influence is most strongly felt. With North Africa sitting just across the Mediterranean, the area was once a major target for the Arabs, who conquered much of the landscape in the eighth century and left an everlasting mark on Mojacar.
Although the Christians later took control of the town in the 15th century, the town has retained its Arabic flavour. The narrow cobbled streets and Moroccan-style buildings help to create a mystical atmosphere, with the town seeming almost fictional against the arid backdrop of the Sierra Cabrera.
Littered with churches and historical landmarks, the town is a great place to really get to grips with the culture of southern Spain. The Puerta de la Almedina is the gate to the Old City, dating back 600 years and bearing an inscription in both Spanish and Arabic. Lookout points such as the Mirador de la Plaza Nueva and Mirador del Castillo also offer breathtaking views of the valley and the coast.
If you're looking for action and adventure then the mountains of southern Spain have got you covered. Hiking and climbing are popular pursuits here, with lots of nature trails, caves and lagoons to explore.
Among the most visited sites in the mountain range is the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, a protected salt flat that not only offers surreal scenery but is also home to a huge variety of bird species, including flamingos, African trumpeter finches and white storks. The Cuevas de los Letreros - or Cave of the Signs in English - is another hugely significant archaeological site, containing prehistoric paintings on the walls of the cave, created by the earliest settlers in the region who took refuge inside the rocky structures.
As previously mentioned, Almeria is home to the Tabernas Desert, and exploring this lunar-like terrain is something that won't fail to inspire awe. Among the highlights of this scorching wasteland is the 11th century Tabernas Castle, which is where the Moors are said to have finally surrendered to the Catholics in 1489. Many films have also been shot in this desert, and the Mini Hollywood theme park is a great place to come if you want to experience life in the Wild West.
What makes the mountain ranges of Andalusia so unique is that they rise straight out of the Mediterranean, so they're right on the beach. This has helped the local towns develop an excellent tourism industry, and Mojacar has progressed massively in the last few decades, having been without electricity until the 1960s. These days, however, it has all the amenities you could ever want.
Playa de Cantal is perhaps the most popular beach in the area, and is lined with bars and restaurants, while Playa de las Ventanicas is the largest. Several smaller, quieter sandy stretches can also be found in close proximity, with Playa de la Rumina and El Palmeral offering excellent water sports opportunities.
Mojacar has more than 3000 hours of sun per year. The medium yearly temperature is around 20deg C. The average temperature in the winter is around 18deg c max and 10deg C min.
There are many fiestas in Mojacar, the most important ones are Moors and Christians 10 June, San Augustin 28 Aug, Romero de San Isidro 15 May, Virgn del Rosario 7 October, San Juan Hogueras 23-24 June.
