Almuñécar

Almuñécar

The aqueduct was built by the Romans during their reign over parts of Andalucia. The aqueduct would have served, not only as a valuable supply of fresh water to the town's population, but also would have been vital for the salting industry believed to be practiced in the town.

Situated on a mound overlooking Almuñécar and with views across the Mediterranean, the San Miguel Castle made for an excellent defensive stronghold. The castle is said to date back to the Phoenician era in 7th century BC. Since then the castle offers a fantastic journey through time having Roman, Moorish and more recently Christian influences.

The Costa Tropical was given its' name due to the unique tropical micro climate that exists in this part of Andalucia. This climate is an ideal environment for the growth of subtropical plants, especially species of Palm.

In the foothills of the Sierra Almijara on Granada's Costa Tropical is the seaside resort of Almuñécar, with a dramatic coastline of plunging cliff faces, secluded coves with beaches tucked away between steep cliffs and a smattering of jagged Peñónes (rocky outcrops) just off Almuñécar beach.

This park isn't short of activities with a Wavepool, Kamikaze and Black Hole rides as well as a children's pool. Regarding on land activities, there is a play area with trampolines, inflatable castle and table football.
