Almuñécar is one of the most important archaeo-tourist destinations in Andalusia, where every corner contains the remains of the ancient history of the city. Its coastline is known by the brand name of Costa Tropical, a name in keeping with its extensive beaches, its climatic conditions and its exuberant tropical and subtropical vegetation. A unique combination in the Iberian Peninsula, as well as in the whole European continent.
This area has a Roman aqueduct from the 1st century AD, which carried water to the city and the salting factory, that was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1931.
Almuñécar is located on the Costa Tropical. Is a town crossed by the National 340. Separated from Malaga and Granada by 70 km, it is easily accessible by the Mediterranean motorway or A-7 (known as the Coastal Highway). If you are coming from Madrid or Granada, you can get there driving along the Nacional 323. The aqueduct can be easily accessed by all types of vehicles.
