River Nacimiento Valley

River Nacimiento Valley

There are five municipal districts in the Rio Nacimiento Valley and one has the same name as the river. The highway form Almeria to Guadix climbs this valley. One municipality is unusual in that it is not the name of a village. This is called Las tres Villas (three villages) and was created in 1976 combining the hamlets of Ocaña, Doña María and Escúllar. There is not much new construction in this area because it lies within the Parque Natural de Sierra Nevada.
