Castilléjar

Castilléjar

For as long as can be remembered, the beginning of February has been reserved for a special bonfire night, when villagers, neighbours and visitors are invited to taste all sorts of local food and wine. Meats and other products are donated by the villagers and a huge communal barbeque is enjoyed by everyone.

At 766 metres above sea level, the stunning little village of Castillejar is one of the six Andalusian hamlets that make up the region of Huescar in the north east corner of the Province of Granada. With a population of around 2,000, this idyllic haven is tucked away and yet easily accessible at just 15 minutes off the A-92 Mediterranean autovía (motorway).
