One of those beautiful Pueblos Blancos, mostly pedestrian and very clean. A very pleasant place to stroll around. Don't worry about the language as so many of the residents are from Engkand, Germany, Scandinavia etc and many if the restaurants are owned by foreigners as well which may explain the wide choice of food and good service.

We lived here for more than twenty years and used to know it so well. In the past twenty years so much more has been constructed it is in danger of ruining the character of this once beautiful place. I recommend seeing it now before they manage to spoil it completely.

Small, original village in Spain. Very very friendly people with just the right atmosphere. Love the sun, the bars, the people, the peace and quiet and above all everyone is friendly

We stayed down on the coast but after reading other reviews on TA and being recommended by guest services in our hotel, we took the brief journey by taxi up into the hills and visiting the old town. The quaint restaurants and bars made it worth while and the view from the church at the top very special. Don't miss... More

Had seen previous comment about the village on tripadvisor so thought we'd investigate. It was lovey - real traditional Spanish village and we were lucky that we went up during on the evening market events and the streets were buzzing. (We left at midnight at the place was still packed).
