Alhama de Granada
Alhama de Granada, in the fertile heart of the Poniente Granadino in Andalucia Spain, is the perfect holiday destination.
The town of Alhama offers history dating from Roman times through Moorish reign and up to modern days. Alhama is very attractive, traditional, bustling and precariously positioned running along the edge of an enormous limestone gorge, Los Tajos. Along the bottom of the gorge runs the Rio Alhama and nearby hot springs gurgle into four thermal pools next to the river. The town has grand, imposing Medieval architecture and lively bars surrounding attractive squares. Surrounding Alhama are soft, pastel shaded rolling hills, attractive small villages and stunning views extending to looming mountain ranges.
Alhama is perfectly situated, close enough for: an easy day or overnight trip to the splendid cities of Granada and Malaga; the sea air of the attractive seaside towns of Nerja and Almunecar; and the striking and exhilarating mountain regions of the Sierra Nevada and the Sierras Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara which offer great walking and wintersports. The area has so much to offer you can easily spend quite some time here unwinding and exploring, at any time of the year.
