Las Negras is a village located in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar about 50 km from the provincial capital, Almería.
The name comes from an ancient history. It is said that the village of Las Negras was founded after a tragedy at sea. Sailors of the village of San Pedro went to sea and never heard from them again. After this, the wives of the sailors, engaged in agriculture, saw the need to reach out to other people in order to survive. They created this new settlement, conditioned the name for the color of mourning of its founders. Originally, the village only consisted of 10 white houses.
