Centre of the desert
The town of Tabernas (400m asl) is located right in the middle of the desert in the small valley hemmed in between two low ridges. In the town itself is interesting perhaps only the church, so it is worth to ascend to the local ruins of the castle and enjoy interesting wide views of the surrounding wilderness.
