Laroya is an Arabic word that means pot. This name involves the town’s location, which is in a hollow between mountain ranges, crossed by the river of the same name. Traditionally, the town has survived thanks to agriculture and the extraction of marble, although more recently its inhabitants have taken advantage of the natural beauties it possesses to develop rural tourism with great success.
