Destination: La Herradura
Dozens of beaches and small coves with crystal clear waters, 320 days of sunshine a year and an average annual temperature of 20 degrees. These are the credentials of the Costa Tropical, the 73 kilometres of coastline in the province of Granada. Its name is due to the exceptionally mild climate throughout the year, which two centuries ago allowed it to become the only place in Europe where subtropical fruits such as mangoes, cherimoya and avocados are grown.
Names that evoke exotic flavors and places and yet are typical of one of the most privileged corners of Andalusia.

La Herradura Castle
For those people who are looking for a more historical and cultural plan, we suggest a visit to the La Herradura Castle in the municipality of Almuñécar (Granada). It was built as part of the improvements in the defense of the coast of the old Kingdom of Granada during the reign of Carlos III. It consists of a rectangular enclosure with the main façade of La Herradura, semicircular towers and a large semicircular battery for artillery, which is lower than the rest of the building. Inside the fort, you can visit a large central courtyard, around which the rooms are distributed, covered by brick vaults, for the garrison.
