We went three times to Lanjaron, we enjoyed the ride from Salobrena where we stayed. Although we never found the Spa in Lanjaron, the local people and restaurants were very friendly. This place is well worth a visit

This is a significant landmark in Lanjaron which has great views over the valley below and is really worth a visit as part of the circular walking route round Lanjaron.

At the entrance of the Sierra Nevada this old arab castle ruin overlooks the valley. It is worth climbing the few stairs into and onto the castle. You get a splendid 360 view. The castle itself is small. The entrance is free.

A remnant of the Moorish presence, Lajaron castle ruins give an insight to their stronghold in the area. It's a nice walk on a sunny day, although it can get windy too as it is pretty exposed.
