The story of Duende

Our Villa is called Duende, but what does it mean? Duende is on of those impossible to translate words, that relates to the "state of bliss or spell" that a (flamenco) artist comes in during a perfor-mance. It has something magical, just like our villa.

If you want to withness the Duende for yourself, go to a flamenco show in Granada, were the culteral heart of the Gypsys is to be found in the Sacromonte area.













Salobrena - Historical town

The historical part of Salobrena consists of the typical white houses, built on the slopes of the mountain, which houses the Castillo Arabe, the summer retreat of the Nasrid dynasty, who governd in the Alhambra in Granada.

Salobreña, hanging from an imposing rock, still conserves in its historical town centre the medieval structure of its Arab time, with a framework of side streets, corridors and labyrinths, whitewashed houses, sprinkled with flowers that add colour to the charming surroundings. Amazing corners with bends, inner doors, little windows, passages and vaults.

Names as suggestive as La Loma neighbourhood, the Fuente, the Brocal or the Albaicín, transport us to us to previous times.*

Typical white houses in the traffic free streets of the old part of the city.*

The patrimony also constitutes one of its tourist attractions. The Arab Castle, which in summer it welcomes numerous cultural activities, the Church of the Rosario, the Medina, the Parque de la Fuente, and the Park and viewpoints of Gambullón among others stand out. The Local Tourist Office organizes interesting guided visits through these and other places, like the fertile and green fertile plain that extends on the feet of the Castle, with cultivations of sugar and tropical fruits trees.*

The Castillo Arabe makes a perfect visit, for great vistas over the sea and the surrounding mountains.*
