The small town of Gérgal is just off the motorway linking Almeria with Granada on the slopes of the Filabres Mountains. An ideal place for a short break and an hour-long tour of both the large church and the interesting Castillo de Gérgal

View of the city of Gérgal

From the access road there are nice views of this small town and its two landmarks. The surrounding mountain slopes are full of walls, but instead of cultivated fields, only cacti grow here

Walk through the streets of Gérgal

Gérgal is such a mountain „pueblo blanco“ with white facades of houses, but at first glance it can be seen that his best years are behind him – he looks quite semi-deserted

View from the castle

The road winds towards the castle and gradually opens up quite a nice view of both the city and the Sierra Nevada in the background

Surrounding fields

The local land is black, full of cacti. Are there remains, walls or strange dwellings for animals in the area?

From Gérgal you can continue to the ridge of the Filabres mountains or on the motorway to Guadix or Almeria
