Beautiful villages of Almería: Lucainena de las Torres


Dear guests, today we talk about one of the most beautiful villages of Spain: Lucainena de las Torres, located in the region of Almería. This white and green village is well-known for its beautiful streets decorated with typical andalusian flowers and its pintoresque corners where you can relax after the day. In this place, everywhere you see it's a perfect site to take a photo: from any normal street to the impresive viewpoints at the top of the village, everything is ubicated in order to satisfy your eyes. But Lucainena it's not just a beautiful village to take photos! There you can try traditional dishes made with products of the area (pelotas de maíz, perdiz en guiso, potaje de calabazas, bollos de nata), learn about Spanish history (this is a very old village and has a rich past: from romans to muslims) and do some sports like walking, cycling or running! The main places to visit in this village are the following ones:

  • Parochial church of Nuestra Señora de Montesión
  • The Windmill
  • The Vía Verde of Lucainena
  • Hornos de calcinación (the calcinating kilns)
  • Townhall and village square (every saturday there is a street market by the square)
  • Viewpoints of Poyo de la Cruz and Garruchete
  • Museum of ceramics

We recommend you to visit Lucainena de las Torres when there is an important festivity like in September (fiesta en honor a la virgen de Montesión), January (fiesta de San Sebastián) or July (la romería de Santo Santiago y de la Virgen de Montesión). You can see more in this video about this little and lovely village!
