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!
See one of the best preserved and largest Roman aqueducts around Almuñécar, just outside of town along the River Seco. This is located in El Torreon Restaurante near the Santa Cruz Resort and Spa. Just minutes away, you will enjoy a guided walk from to Bodega Vinacoteca La Princesa in la Finca La Santa Cruz to the Aqueduct, with locals Ana or Carlos. They will share with you the history and discovery of the aqueducts. The aqueduct is in great condition and if you have little ones, there is a playground just in front of it. You will also enjoy amazing views of the nearby chirimoya farms and see a few olive trees as well.
You will then return to their bodega and enjoy a tasting of fine wines (1 glass of chardonnay, 1 glass of red Sucunza). The wine tasting will be paired with with samples of Spanish jamon, cheese and extra virgin olive oil. We had a great time meeting some locals and tasting the wine. Of course we walked out purchasing a few bottles as well, because we liked it so much.
This guided tour and tasting is €5 per person, kids under 12 are free. Please contact them to schedule your wine tasting and tour today!
