This area is steeped in history with so many interesting places to visit such as The local Lakes at El Chorro where you can hire a canoe or pedalo, go swimming, bird watching, walking or enjoy the Andalucian cuisine in the local Restaurants while adoring the stunning views.
The experience of visiting Torcal Natural Park is difficult to describe as the area has an eerie silence in a bowl on a mountain that appears to be surrounded by apartment blocks. In fact they are rocks that have been victims of the whole area being under the sea until one hundred million years ago and are split horizontally. Very strange but all explained in the on site Museum next to the Cafe. Well worth the short trip!
Arab Castle is on a hill that overlooks Casa Manhattan Guesthouse. Álora's castle was first built by the Phoenicians and subsequently expanded under Roman rule. In the 5th century the castle was virtually destroyed by the Visigoths, only to be rebuilt under the Moors; remnants of this era still remain, namely the decorative steel door and the traditional Arab mirador.
