So glad to see you in Almuñécar! It is great that you would like to learn Spanish and we have just the place for you to take your Spanish Course!
If you would like to learn Spanish, in a fun way, from an accredited school, then Tropical Coast Languages (TCLanguages) is the place to go. From personal experience, we highly recommend taking Spanish courses in Spain with TCLanguages. We have seen people who arrived in Almuñécar, with very little Spanish, make incredible progress in just a few weeks.
As you meander the pedestrian streets of old town Almuñécar, you are bound to happen upon the Calle Real Fountain. This fountain was originally built in 1559, with remnants of the Roman aqueduct encased in glass beside the fountain. It 1994, the Calle Real Fountain was restored to its current state.
The Archaeological Museum Cueva de Siete Palacios, also known as the Cave of 7 Palaces, is surprisingly not located within a cave. Instead it represents the largest section of the former Roman Palace. The museum is located in what was once the basement of this Roman Palace. Inside, there are remains of the historic past of Almuñécar. Including remains found at the necropolis of Puente de Noy, Laurita, and the fish salting factory of El Majuelo.
When visiting Almuñécar, it is almost impossible not to notice the Blas Infante Arches (Puerta de Almuñécar). As you pass by on the N340, you will see the Blas Infante Arches stand out amidst all of the tall trees. This is a great meeting point in town, as it is easy to find.
Pétanque in Almuñécar is very popular in the winter months, when the “snow birds” all flock to Almuñécar. Here in Spain it is referred to as Petanca. The play areas can be quite crowded, so some groups have even stopped publishing the days and times they meet. That said, you can pretty much count on it any day the sun is out, which is nearly every day!
What better way to experience a bit of local culture than to visit a historic Roman Aqueduct and also enjoy a wine tasting. Spend the afternoon at a local bodega with wine tasting, olive oil tasting and tapas, with a walk to the historic Roman Aqueduct!
