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.

Ruins of castle in Tabernas

The biggest attraction is, however, the ruins on the hill above it. More than for the remains of the castle it is interesting for its very nice view. To the ruins lead the wide comfortable path from the sports ground on the north end of town.

You will feel here more like in Latin America rather than in Europe thanks to the surrounding countryside and simple low buildings in the suburbs.
