This charming white town nestles in the shade of the Sierra de Líjar. Its streets are lined with orange trees and tinkle to the murmur of its twelve fountains, including the Algarrobo Fountain. Apart from its prehistoric sites at Cueva Santa, Chamusquina, Castillejo and El Cerro de la Botinera, the town also boats numerous important monuments such as the Santa Ana Parish Church, a late Baroque style building with neo-Classical elements. Also noteworthy are the hermitages of Jesús Nazareno and La Virgencita and, on the edge of the town, the La Concepción Hermitage (18th Century) and the
Flour Mills. If you have the time, the district of La Muela is worth a visit to watch the lion vultures in flight, from the peaks of the Sierra de Líjar. Thanks to its privileged location and climate, Algodonales has become a sanctuary for air sports lovers.
During the celebration of this festivity, Plaza de Santa Ana, with its church in the background, becomes a feast of colours.
