Municipality belonging to the region of Valle del Almanzora, in the area of marble, as this is the main economic resource of the town, especially the transformation of the stone, as well as a rich fertile plain.
The town is located on the banks of the Almanzora River and has a new layout, with a straight line, and straight streets and uniform houses, among which the Parochial Church stands out. In the hamlet of Almanzora is the Palace of the Marquis of Almanzora, beautiful example of the neoclassical.
Something that characterizes especially the Villa de Cantoria is the welcoming and hospitable character of its inhabitants. The bonanza of its climate during the great part of the year and its more ingrained customs make that the cantorianos are accustomed to live in the street, to share experiences and to open their doors to anyone who visits them. A clarifying fact of this hospitality is the large number of foreigners who have taken up their residence in the Villa and now feel part of it. In fact, it is not strange that these citizens participate actively in the different celebrations that are celebrated throughout the year, as well as in the daily life of the locality.
