great hills more than 2000 metres high, from which three rivers,
the Gergal, the Medio and the Nimas, come down to join forces by
the village as the river Bacares, whose waters irrigate the
thirsty fields on the hillsides of the Almanzora area. The
village has a population of just over 300 and its economy is
based mainly on agriculture and rural tourism. It has a mining
tradition going back to Phoenician times and its mountains
provided iron up to the 19th century. Traces remain of those
early mines, as well as of more recent ones, but what has left
the strongest mark is the village’s Arab past. The arrangement of
its streets and its hillside location, along with its old water
channels, remain almost intact.
