Albox is nestled between the Sierra de las Estancias and the Sierra de los Filabres mountain ranges, a short distance from the Almanzora river. It is a typical whitewashed town with narrow streets interspersed with small plazas. As a small agricultural town it is surrounded by olive groves and lemon and orange orchards.
The origin of Albox is medieval and the remains of an ancient fort can be found on a nearby hill. In 1503 an earthquake destroyed it and many of its historical buildings were lost. It has been completely reconstructed in its present location.
Albox and the surrounding area offer a number of outdoor pursuits for the visitor. There area multitude of country areas to walk and explore, horse riding, cycling or off-roading in a 4WD. The area is also home to Europe’s biggest observatory.
Many of the local traditions in Albox remain, including ceramics. Two celebrated ceramicist families. Herminio and the Ends, remain in Albox. Their pottery factories still cook the mud in the old Arab furnaces and produce popular decorative ceramics, mostly earthenware.
There is a flourishing weekly market held on Tuesdays selling fresh fruit and vegetables, clothes and household items and a smaller market on a Saturday morning.. The market spans through the streets into the Rambla (a dry riverbed) and here you can buy everything from clothes to livestock. Albox town has all the usual amenities – banks; supermarkets, pharmacies, doctors, 24hr emergency centre, hairdressers, beauty salons, plus a wide range of bars/restaurants – including Spanish, English, Indian, Chinese.
Almeria airport approx one hour. Murcia and Alicante airport are also easily accessible via good motorway connections. The coastal resorts of Mojacar, Vera Playa, Garrucha and San Juan de los Terreros are about a 30 minute drive.
A one-hour drive from Almeria’s modern international airport, through ever-changing dramatic scenery, lies the last Arab enclave left on the Spanish mainland- Mojacar. Conquered by the Moors, recaptured centuries later by Catholic kings, the village’s existence can be traced back to 2000 BC. A Spanish national monument, this quaint “corner of enchantment ” remains unspoilt and unexploited- a village of sparkling white houses seemingly built on top of one another, separated by a labyrinth of narrow and twisting cobbled alleyways, providing a fascinating mixture of ancient and modern
Mojacar is one of the most beautiful, picturesque and enchanting villages on the entire coast, with some 17 kilometres of fine, sandy beaches. It enjoys an excellent location, protected from behind by the Cabrera mountain range and overlooking the inviting Mediterranean sea. Its Southerly location, close proximity to the African continent and the high surrounding mountains assures an exceptional subtropical climate, where temperatures are kind all year round with an average of 21 degrees Celsius.
The climate allows for an abundance of wild flowers and herbs, and this area is host to a large variety of birds including linnets, swifts, green finches, woodlark, hoopoes, magpies and partridges.
The town is divided into two areas, the original village, Mojacar Pueblo, two kilometres from the coast, and Mojacar Playa which accommodates the tourist developments and offers a complete range of services, and attractions, whilst still in keeping with the local environment.
Mojacar still remains loyal to her past with her architecture, and white washed houses cut into the cliff. Old women can still be seen doing their washing in the flow away of the public fountain, offering the fresh mountain spring water, which is fantastic. These combine with the highly cosmopolitan world of shops, bars, discos, restaurants, banks, hairdressers, and a mini shopping centre called “Parque Comercial” offering lots of boutiques and ceramic shops.
