All in Bacares is imposing: its situation, under three peaks from among the highest of the mountain range of the Filabres, its own height, at more than 1.200 meters above sea level; the three rivers that descend to the immediacies of the town to be joined and to form the River of Bacares that descends down the valley to join the Almanzora River; the deep valleys that there are in its proximity.
Bacares counts, therefore, with imposing natural surroundings. But not less imposing is its history, of origin Phoenician born due to the mining industry, a mining industry that became very important to the Arabic Spain, as it provided their weapons and later, the metalwork for the construction of the Cathedral in Almeria and other important buildings.
Under the greenness that rises toward the tops and with an important development in recent years, Bacares shows signs of attracting new residents
like many of the towns around it.
The church, that of the Christ of the Forest, is an annual center of pilgrimage on the 14th of September in one of the most important pilgrimages of the province. Bacares, as all the towns of the region, offers rural tourism to visitors which is the base of much of the future development which at present the town needs.
Today Bacares is a lively town.with extensive plazas, a great restaurant and many little bars all around.
