This is the old Spain, with modern conveniences neatly hidden behind the dazzling white adobe walls and orange tiled houses.

Definitely worth a visit! Lovely little streets and great attractions. The museum opening times are a bit all over the place so check them before you go. Nice restaurants and shops. Great place to go to get away from the 'touristy' feel

Always worth a stroll around it's pretty streets and sunny courtyards. There are some good restaurants close to the centre. Leave your car in the car park on the main road and just wander and enjoy the peace.

Very hilly, but well worth going for the fiestas and during Semana Santa for the processions and Passion Play.

Then looking down from th view point too the right of the church there's a construction created by three men over a period of three years. The Castillo-de-Colomares a wonder land of pure magical imagination by these three men. Dedicated... More
