We will share with you all of the details about the location, artists, and where to get your tickets.
The Trópico Express Train takes you on a tour along the beaches and paseos of Almuñécar. You will see it each night in the summer and hear them ding the bells, as they drive past. Wave to the people on the train and have some fun or even better go for a ride yourself.
Almuñécar is a town of about 30,000 people and during the high season that number can nearly triple. While the main part of town is very compact and accessible via foot there is more to it than what a map can show you. There are several Almuñécar neighborhoods that may appear close on a map, but are set in hillsides so could be quite a hike. Each area also has a different look and feel and can be active all year or mainly during the summer months.
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 monument to Phoenicians is located along the upper level of the Paseo del Altillo. This is a tribute to the Phoenician culture and its contribution to the history of Almuñécar. It was built after the Phoenician Necropolis was unearthed nearby and their ancient mysteries discovered.
The monument to water is one of the many monuments you will find around town. This one in particular is very interesting to look at. These are really three separate statues; three bronze torsos (one male and two females) leaping over fountains of water. Because the artist created without heads or complete bodies, some think they are a work in progress, but we assure you they are complete.
The neighborhood of San Sebastián is one of the oldest in Almuñécar and has some ancient treasures to discover. Not only will you see one of the several sections of the Roman aqueduct, but there is another little treasure. Tucked away in the narrow streets of the neighborhood is the small hermitage of San Sebastián.
