"Algodonales, in the shadow of the Sierra de Líjar, is a charming white village with streets lined with orange trees and with the lively murmur of its twelve fountains, including the Algarrobo Fountain. Because of its privileged geographical location and climate, Algodonales has become a haven for lovers of aerial sports and of active tourism."

The prehistoric sites of the Cueva Santa, Chamusquina, Castillejo and the Cerro de la Botinera aswell as monuments like the Santa Ana Parish Church, set in late Baroque style with neoclassical elements added. Also noteworthy are the hermitages of Jesús Nazarene and the Virgin, and in the outskirts the Chapel of the Conception (13th century) and the flour mills.
If you have time, it is worth visiting the small village of La Muela, to watch from the hilltops of Líjar the flight of the Griffon Vulture.
