FUENTE ÁLAMO

ABOUT THE REGION > DESTINATIONS AND LOCALITIES > RURAL AND INLAND TOURISM > OTHER INLAND DESTINATIONS > FUENTE ÁLAMO
The district of Fuente Álamo is roughly 35km from the regional capital, well-connected, and with its year-round pleasant climate, nearness to the coast and beautiful scenery make it an ideal place for rural tourism. The district itself is large, half of it being open plains and the rest being rather hillier with the ranges of Algarrobo, Pinilla, Los Gomez, Los Victorias, Cabezos de Tallante and the Carrascoy National Park, whose highest peak is La Peña del Águila (1,066m). The area's vegetation is mainly scrub and bush, although there still persist some pine forests in the area of Carrascoy National Park. Naturally, all this makes it an ideal area for hill walking, mountain biking and horse riding and have made the area an ideal stopping place for those interested in enjoying rural tourism, with the added attractions of its villages, country mansions and numerous traditional windmills. The present town of Fuente Álamo goes back to the 16th C., though its fertile lands and excellent climate also attracted settlers in older, prehistoric times as well as in Roman times. Both Christmas and Easter are celebrated with Fiestas, but the year's main Fiesta is held on the 28th of August in honour of the town's patron saint, St Augustine. The locals participate eagerly and many are members of associations or peñas, who always give a warm welcome to outsiders. These Fiestas are also of interest for a chance to sample the local gastronomy of hearty local dishes of roast lamb and the like.
