Our trip through Tabernas
From Nijar we took the AL-3107 towards Lucainena de Las Torres, a small white village located in the midst of La Sierra Alhamilla.
This is a wonderful scenic route through the desert which has been the setting of many spaghetti westerns since being discovered in the 1960’s.
A small sleepy village surrounded by desert scrub-land and dominated by an impressive Nazari castle. Declared of Cultural Interest on the 22nd April 1949 it is an imposing structure which unfortunately has been allowed to fall to ruin.
