Mojácar´s unmistakeable silhoutte, clinging to the hillside gives the distant traveller a tantalising glimpse of the beauty within; Mojácar is the town which best expresses the very essence of Eastern Almería.

The Moorish character of the town is evident in its narrow, steep and winding streets, in the whitewashed walls of its houses, and in the colourful flowers that embellish their façades. This is a town to lose yourself in, a place where, through countless small details, the past whispers to those who listen.

In Moorish times, the town was called Muxacra and it was a place where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony.

Today it is still an open, cosmopolitan town accustomed to welcoming visitors from all over the world.
