Partaloa, situated on the road that links Oria with the Marmol Motorway, will surprise you with the almost implausible landscape of numerous stone blocks of enormous size that seem to threaten the buildings of the village. This is the phenomenon of “Los Desplomes“, with immense conglomerates of stone that “threaten” the village by hanging from the hillside.
From the viewpoint, you can observe this marvellous landscape with incredible 360º views. The municipality offers numerous possibilities for hiking (Estrechos del Ciscarico), MTB routes and horse riding as there are two equestrian ranches in the town that offer this service.
If you visit this municipality and want to know what to see and do in it, we have selected on this page a series of suggestions to make your stay easier and more interesting.
We hope you enjoy it.
If you are a photography lover and you are looking for incredible places to capture impressive images, then you cannot miss visiting these two natural wonders that will leave you speechless.See Excursion

WHAT TO SEE IN PARTALOA
The so-called collapses are a form of hillside collapse characteristic of the erosive and sedimentary dynamics in arid zones. By virtue of this dynamic, between the slopes of the mountains and the lower areas of the valleys, a gently sloping plane develops, which is known by the name of glacis.
The viewpoint of Partaloa is a wooden construction of about 50 meters long in the form of a corridor that ends in a closed balcony. It is located on top of the Piedras del Castillo next to the Hermitage. It was built in 2006 and is considered the Balcon del Almanzora. From here we can have unbeatable panoramic views at a 360º angle. On the right we see the hamlet of Retamar, in front of the town of Partaloa with its meadow and on the left the hill where Algarrobo is located. In the background there is the Sierra de los Filabres where in winter you can see the Tetica de Bacares nevada. The Mirador de Partaloa is a must for those who walk the “Estrechos del Ciscarico” Trail and for lovers of photography. Source: https://www.wikanda.es/wiki/Mirador_de_Partaloa
