Suflí is a small village of just over 200 inhabitants. The most important monuments in Suflí are the Parish Church built on the remains of another old church of which some elements were used, the Ermita de la Cruz, a tiny construction, and the Ermita de San Roque, built around 1753.
Suflí’s current economic activity is centred on the agro-food industries, small but very prestigious throughout the province of Almería and neighbouring provinces. The oldest people of the place tell that all their lives they have been making fritada preserves in the houses. The “fritá” can be eaten just as it comes in the tin, adding oil, so we have the “ensalá asá”. Or you can make the classic Almerian recipe, which consists of frying peppers and tomatoes with lean meat, offal, rabbit or kid.
The natural surroundings of the village are of unparalleled beauty. Trails such as those of the Yeseras, the Pilgrim’s Route or the Peñascos will make you live and feel the nature of the Filabres.

WHAT TO SEE IN SUFLÍ
El Paraje de la Fuente is located on the outskirts of town, it is an area enabled for excursions, popular meals, in short, an ideal place to spend unforgettable moments. The Caños de Suflí Fountain is one of the most attractive and picturesque settings in the municipality. Its existence is already documented in the books of Appeal and Distribution of the Castilian repopulation and later in the Ensenada Cadastre. It has been devastated several times by the floods of the Almanzora, the last before its reconstruction in 1880. Until there was running water in all the houses of the town, in the last third of the 20th century, the fountain was the place of supply par excellence, using pitchers in beasts to transport it to homes, as a watering hole for work animals and livestock, and also as a laundry for clothes and household supplies. The fountain was made in a period of the heyday of Freemasonry in Spain, ordered to be built by a mayor who was fond of this movement and presents the symbolism of this institution in its design and modeling. It is rebuilt on another previous source, of Andalusian medieval origin, which collected the tributaries of […]
Our visits tend to focus on urban areas and some external element, so we ignore 95% of the space. For this reason we propose that we focus on the panoramic viewpoints, such as the Mirador de Suflí, in which today we lean out to realize how big and beautiful the power of nature is. In all the towns of our Valley we can find many hidden places between the two mountain ranges, offering us the possibility of observing nature and navigating in its wonderful landscapes.
