Exploring Spain: A photo walk in Almuñécar

With its subtropical climate, year-round sunshine, and long beaches on the Mediterranean Sea, Almunecar (Spanish: Almuñécar) is one of the most popular tourist destinations in southern Spain. This attractive coastal resort town is located on the Costa Tropical in the province of Granada, Andalusia; it is just 1 hour east of Malaga and 1 hour south of Granada by car.

Almunecar was founded by the Phoenicians 3000 years ago. Many of the streets and buildings of its Old Town were developed by the Moors between the 8th and 15th centuries. The town has 19 km (11.8 mi) of the local coastline.
