Algodonales, thanks to its privileged location and climate, is a "must go to" destination for paraglider and Hang-gliding pilots and is an area rich in outdoor pursuits where you can experience other activities such as mountain biking, road cycling, bird watching, walking and orienteering.
The town is unique in Andalucia because of the pilots who visit from all around the world giving the town a truly cosmopolitan feel.
The town has a large central, lively Plaza fringed with restaurants offering a wide range of good value meals including vegetarian and vegan options. There is something for every budget.
A stroll from the plaza will offer more traditional bars and eateries and you will be made welcome.
There are the usual modern conveniences such as supermarket, pharmacies and a medical centre. There is also a good selection of Artisan and independent shops selling local produce e.g. honey, olive oil, several bread shops offering an extensive selection and gift shops as well as health food shops.
This charming white town nestles in the shade of the Sierra de Líjar. Its streets are lined with orange trees and tinkle to the murmur of its many drinking fountains.
