What to see We highly recommend visiting San Miguel castle, home to the local History Museum, where you can learn all about Almuñecar and its fascinating past. The narrow cobbled streets around the castle are teeming with hidden corners and delightful plazas full of flowers. You can also visit La Cueva de Siete Palacios (Cave of the Seven Palaces), home to the Almuñecar Archaeological Museum, where there is a collection of items discovered at nearby sites. The Romans built an aqueduct and baths here, which are still standing today, just outside the town. Other places to visit during your stay include La Encarnación church, Najarra mansion and an old fish salting factory in the historic town centre. Beaches Almuñecar has excellent beaches along 19 km of coast, all suitable for bathing, where you can go scuba-diving and enjoy all kinds of water sports. We recommend: Calabajió, where the water is quite shallow; Cantarrijan, a nudist beach at the foot of a tall cliff; or La Herradura, a great choice for snorkelling. Gastronomy You can try a wide range of local produce, exotic fruits like cherimoya and all kinds of fresh fish, with which they create exquisite dishes such as dogfish with potatoes, tuna and onions or fish soup.
