Details

Set in a privileged location at the base of the Sierra Alhamilla, this gorgeous little town and its surroundings are truly delightful. In the centre of the village is the newly opened Venta del Museo, a stunning hotel boasting three restaurants and a tapas bar.

This village is situated to the north of the Sierra of Alhamilla, bordering o­n the natural park of Cabo de Gata, the Sierra Cabrera and Sierra Alhamilla.  Lucainena is 53 kilometres from the city of Almeria, it has some 650 inhabitants and being at 550 metres above sea level means that the summers are fresh and pleasant. The municipality is of 124 kilometres square.

The 18th century parish church stands out in the town for having a beautiful panoramic view of beautiful scenery and its old mill from its mirador.  It is also worth visiting the main square in the town, where you will find the town hall and its centenary tree.  We must also emphasise the fresh water fountain over the old hospital where you can taste the exquisite and fresh water from the mountain range.

The first settlers here were the Neolithic, known due to the important archaeological site called " The Olivillos", in which traces of these first settlers have appeared, attracted by the metals of its mountain.Later inhabitants were the Romans and many remains are there to be seen.  A Roman villa excavated there belonged to a Roman named Lucanius, who by having a mosaic of his name o­n o­ne of the floors inadvertaintly gave part of the name to the village.

Of the arab period, remains of a small mosque, which had the name of "Locaynena" inscribed in the Cora of Bayyana, which was delivered the catholic Kings in 1488.In those times, the then named Lucaicena was surroundedby a wall, probably Arabic, which had 6 towers that were lookout points for the main tower in which the inhabitants would take refuge during intented attacks.  From there the town then took the name of "Lucaicena of the Seven Towers" simplified later to "Lucaicena of the Towers" and then modified in modern times to "Lucainena de las Torres".

Now a lovely town to visit and a great place to live, Lucainena is close to services o­n the motorway and the city of Almeria, but far enough away to be a peaceful and ideal locality to those who appreciate the counryside.
