Almonaster la Real
Almonaster La Real is located 100 km from Huelva and 40 km from Portugal. Its origins date back to the Bronze Age, and it also has Roman remains. The Historic Complex of Almonaster La Real has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, and we also highlight the Hermitage of Santa Eulalia and the Church of San Martín.
Its Islamic urban nucleus from the time of Al-Andalus was of great relevance: it is a time in which the economy, culture, commerce, construction and religion shone. Proof of this is the great vestige of the Al-Munastir mosque (10th century). To remember the great importance of that time, in Almonaster La Real every year during the month of October the Days of Islamic Culture are celebrated.
Other monuments: Roman bridge, Mudejar Gothic Church of San Martín, Castle, ruins of the hermitage of San Sebastián and other hermitages, reservoirs in the area, etc. We also highlight the many hiking trails that pass through Almonaster La Real. Of its gastronomy, the products from the Iberian pig are relevant, as well as stews, salads, soups and dishes with mushrooms.
