La Almadraba de Monteleva
La Isleta del Moro Arraez
It is a small town located 2 kilometers from the coast, in a valley of spectacular beauty.
Las Hortichuelas still retains the traditional air of Mediterranean villages, with its architecture inherited from the Arab culture: single storey white houses with rounded lines and small windows to protect from heat, as well as flat roofs to collect water and strong walls with buttresses.
In the vicinity we can visit the Mesa Roldan, an impressive volcanic dome on top of which are the Mesa Roldan Tower
and the Mesa Roldan Lighthouse
, and where you can enjoy some of the best views of the Natural Park. There is always a steady flow of people visiting the Los Muertos beach
, one of the most valued beaches of the Natural Park.
Noteworthy is San Andres Island, which is visible from any beach in the town, and which is one of the best places to practice diving. The Rayo Tower is the oldest building in the municipality and dates back to the Nazari era; it is a watchtower that was built to protect the coastline from pirate attacks. The 7 Wonders of Carboneras
