The Moorish castle of Salobreña
We love to show you not only some highlights of the region Costa Tropical, but also some of the unique local attractions, which you could – and should – visit during your stay in Salobreña.
Talking about unique local attraction we shall not forget to mention on of the most important monuments of Salobreña, the “Castillo de Salobreña”.
The castle’s origins date back to the era of the “Nazarí” (in Arabic بنو نصر banū Naṣr) dynasty. The same dynasty has constructed the Alhambra of Granada, which is one of the main treasures of Muslim culture of all times.
Did you know that the province of Granada is the last area of Spain, which has been reconquered from Muslim rule during the more than 500 years long “Reconquista” of the Iberian Peninsula. No other part of Spain has been longer under Muslim rule and the influence of the caliphs. Suprising to hear, giving that today’s population is almost completely of Christian believe.
The castle of Salobreña is just one of several spectacular relicts of Spanish and European history.
Come and visit the Granadian coast, also widely know as Costa Tropical and explore the fascinating artistic, hi
storic and cultural legacy of this significant period of Muslim rule in Spain.
Visit beautiful picturesque landscapes and emergy yourself into Andalusia’s white villages, rural towns and majestetic cities, which have been cultural melting pots for centuries.
The marks can be found everywhere. Come and enjoy the traditional local attractions like tapas, siesta and Flamenco dance, but learn about the region’s entiry history and it will open a whole new horizon to you.
The Costa Tropical is without doubt a destination with various faces and a scenery (Sierre Nevada mountains, Sun&Beach) as manifold as the character and heart of its people.
Start your journey with a stay in one of our fabulous villas and enjoy the view on the Moorish fortress.
Ask your team of GrandesVillas for further advice about historic sights in the area.
Tip: Park your car at the bottom of the hill and walk your way up through small quaint streets decorated with flowers. This will save you time and money, since parking and driving in the narrow streets below the castle is almost impossible.
Entrance: 4€ adults / 2€ reduced ticket
