Almeria Province - Enix

Enix

The town of Enix stands out due to the abundance of water of its municipality. Furthermore, it has managed to preserve the traditional narrow tiered streets and white facades left over from the Muslim occupancy.

The Church of Rosario, erected in the 16th Century, keeps an impressive statue of the Virgin of Rasario inside it which, according to the tradition, presided over the boat of don Juan de Austria in the Battle of Lepanto. The enclosure also has a beautiful Mudéjar style coffered ceiling.

Another monument of special relevance is the parish temple of Santa Teresa, located in the Marchal de Antón López, in the centre of the town. Enix is also home to the ruins of lead mines.

Arts and crafts is nothing special in this town, although there are still some people that dedicate themselves to straw work, always and uniquely as a hobby.
