Details

Albox is nestled between the Sierra de las Estancias and the Sierra de los Filabres mountain ranges, a short distance from the Almanzora river. It is a typical white-washed town with narrow streets interspersed with small plazas. As a small agricultural town it is surrounded by olive groves and orange and lemon orchards.

The origin of Albox is medieval and the remains of an ancient fort can be found o­n a nearby hill. In 1503 it was destroyed by an earthquake and many of its historical buildings were lost. It has been completely reconstructed in its present location.

Albox and the surrounding area offers a number of outdoor pursuits for the visitor. There are a multitude of country areas to walk and explore, horse riding, cycling or off-roading in a 4WD. The area is also home to Europe’s biggest observatory.

Many of the local traditions in Albox remain, including ceramics. Two celebrated ceramicist families, Herminio and the Ends, remain in Albox. Their pottery factories still cook the mud in the old Arab furnaces and produce popular decorative ceramics, mostly earthenware.

There is a flourishing weekly market held o­n Tuesdays that is o­ne of the features of Albox. The market spans through the streets into the Rambla (a dry river bed) and here you can buy everything from clothes to livestock.
