Church of Saint Mary (Cobdar - Almeria)
This is an ecclesiastical construction dating back to the 17th century and is part of the Andalusian Historical Heritage.

It is a small church, whose bell tower can be observed from several points of the town due to its large size (when compared to other structures in the area).

The church gives the impression of being a house of civil architecture, due to its simplicity, but it has a lot of history and importance for the daily life of the town’s inhabitants.
As with other Almerian towns, the church is strategically located in the heart of the area, next to the main square and the town hall, and is part of almost all the traditional activities of the town.

La Fuente Recreational Park, is located at the entrance of the town and is, in itself, an invitation to go in and stay.

La Fuente Recreational Park has a picnic area and a laundry room, in addition to the natural spaces that make it one of the favorite places of locals and visitors.
