IntroductionSituated dead centre in the Costa Tropical is Salobreña. White and sparkling, it embraces the Rock which looks out over the sea, between winding streets with an old Arab flavour, with a sea breeze and shining rays of sun which make everything white.
Salobreña is a precious enclave of culture and tourism. The historical centre is formed by the districts constructed next to or inside the ramparts which fortified the city in the Middle Ages. These made it one of the most impregnable locations on the coast of Al-Andalus.
MonumentsAmongst its most interesting monuments and enclaves, the Arab Castle, the Mudejar Church of the Rosary, the Tower of the Brocal, the Bóveda de la Plaza, the Paseo de la Flores, the Views of the Postigo and the Albaycín stand out. This is not to forget the examples of Salobreña Archaeology, which summarize the lengthy history of the town in the form of scale models, ceramics, tools and exhibitions.
Have an enjoyable stroll and visit the Park of the Fountain, with its pond, gardens, tropical birds and play areas for children, or the Rock of Salobreña, a paleochristian necropolis, on the Paseo Marítimo and afterwards you can see a beautiful view of the Costa Tropical and of the fertile lowlands with Salobreña at its head.
Of great interest is the only working Cane Sugar Factory in Europe. It has a small museum and a model of the whole procedure of processing the cane.
A coastline full of pleasant surprises awaits here. LongBeacheswith all necessary facilities: The beaches of the Rock and of la Charca, where the white of the houses and the meditarranean blue are united, together with food stalls with a distinct taste of the sea. There is the beach of la Guardia, quiet and surrounded by sugar plantations. Or our natural coves: El Caletón or el Pargo, which get lost amongst the cliffs all along the coast on both sides of Salobreña.
