Discover the charms of Mojacar. You’ll begin with a drive through El Desierto de Tabernas, the only semi-desert in Europe. With its weird eroded ravines, dry river beds and barren slopes, it’s one of the most geologically interesting landscapes in Europe. And the surreal lunar setting has long attracted film makers. You’ll drive through Mini-Hollywood, 7km south of Tabernas, where lots of westerns have been filmed. Next, see the village of Sorbas, a protected area of exceptional botanical interest. Then it’s on to Mojacar, where a guide will show you round this Moorish village set on a hill at the foot of the Sierra de Cabrera. Following the ancient route, you’ll arrive at the ‘Puerta de la Ciudad’, or gates of the city. From the top of the village, admire its narrow streets, ramps and quaint little squares, plus get a fantastic view of the Mediterranean coast in the distance. You’ll get some free time for a well-earned rest or a spot of retail therapy – the choice is yours.
