Your motor-coach journey of approximately one hour and forty-five minutes takes you through the Tabernas Desert and the village of Tabernas and Sorbas.

Approaching Mojacar via the ancient route, arrive through the “Puerto de la Ciudad,” or City Gate. Join your guide to explore the intriguing alleyways of this romantic, hilltop town and learn Mojacar’s history, which is as complex and interwoven as its maze of cobbled streets. Populated since the Bronze Age, this hilltop pueblo of white, cubic buildings has been inhabited by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans. As you will see, it was the North African Moors who left the most indelible mark on the town, gleaming and photogenic in its Moroccan style.

During your walk, encounter quaint corners and astounding views at virtually every turn. At the top of the village, admire fantastic views of the Mediterranean coast and the beaches below.

After your guided visit, return to the pier in Almeria.

 

Important Notes: Guests should be aware that there is an approximately three in a half hours, roundtrip motor-coach transfer to Mojacar; however, the fascinating sights included in this excursion are its main focus and more than compensate for the length of the journey.

It is recommended that guests dress in casual clothing and wear a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and flat, comfortable shoes. The operation of this excursion is dependent on prevailing weather conditions. Some crowding may be expected. The order of sights visited may vary.
