Pechina

Pechina

Only 15km northeast of Almeria city is this largely barren and rugged 8,500ha mountain range, designated a protected natural area in 1989. Riven by deep gullies, particularly on its southern slopes, it rises to 1,387m at its highest point of the Colativí peak.

Festivals in Pechina: Cabalgata Reyes Magos, Carnaval, Día de Andalucía, Semana Santa, Fiestas de San Marcos, Fiestas Patronales de San Indalecio, Fiestas de San Luis Gonzaga and Fiestas de San Claudio.

Situated in valley of the Sierra de Alhamilla and served by the Andaráx River, Pechina is well-known for its magnificent Balneario of 58ºC hot springs, which is open all year round. Pechina plays an important role in the history of the province as it was once the dominant Bayyana documented by Arab geographers and historians, the origin and mother of the city of Almería.
