Salobrena Granada Spain

Details

Salobrena is located 65km south of Granada City along the N-340 between the neighbouring towns of Almunecar and Motril.

Throughout its history the town has been inhabited by various Mediterranean cultures including the Argarics, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs. The town was captured by the Catholic Monarchs in 1489 and during the 18th and 19th Centuries came under severe attacks by Turkish pirates. In the 20th Century the town began to prosper once again thanks to the production of sugar cane while in recent years its rising popularity as a tourist destination has also helped to boost the local economy and the areas fertile floodplains are ideal for the cultivation of a wide range of tropical fruits

Salobrena is very typical of the towns found along the Spanish Mediterranean coast although its setting high on a rocky crag (known as Gran Penon - Great Rock) makes it slightly more unique than most. Its steep, winding streets lined with pretty white-washed houses crowned by the magnificent Castillo Arabe (Arab Castle) which dominates the skyline and, thanks to stricter local planning laws, the area has remained relatively free from mass urbanization.

For the more active there is plenty to be enjoyed including walks/ hikes and for watersports enthusiasts the nearby beach provides ample oppurtunity for jet-skiing, sailing, kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving.
