Arboleas is located at the Valle del Almanzora. It is 105 km away from the city of Almería. In 1996 it had only 1550 inhabitants and in the present it has more than 4500 people live many of them are of British nationality.
It’s about Arboleas from a municipality that has tried, for some years, to convert its
heritage, whether natural, archaeological, artistic, architectural or ethnological in tourism resource.
This together with the private initiative, in the sense that it has endowed us with restaurants and accommodation of a certain quality, we have managed to set up a sector, such as tourism, where we intend to combine tradition, nature, art and quality.
On the one hand, patrimonial resources, and other infrastructures, whether public or private, have been arranged on routes, which are about:
- Urban route: a visit to the Church, Casa Curatos, Torre Vigía and Pedro Gilabert Museum, to finish walking through the oldest streets in the Plaza de la Constitución.
- Ruta del Campo: taking as a guide the Arroyo Aceituno and the natural environment of the Sierra de la Murta and showing the most traditional in terms of economic activity, agriculture, popular architecture …
- Historic route: route that is identified with one of the great routes of Al-Andalus, the Al-Jatib Route, which runs through the future Greenway of Almanzora.
- Active tourism route or route Limaria-Los Higuerales: which corresponds to the area of the term that reaches higher altitudes, sparsely populated and therefore suitable for developing certain outdoor activities.
