One of the most beautiful villages in Spain, with white houses on a hill. Great scenic view from there.

Mojacar pueblo is Spain's most beautiful & preserved old town, so pretty it doesn't seem real. Perched on a hill with spectacular views over the mediterranean sea, white washed houses & narrow winding cobbled streets. The symbol of Mojacar pueblo is the Indalo Man locals put the symbol above their door to bring protection & good luck.

The Pueblo is full of lovely shops and restaurants. There are fantastic panoramic views all around. It can get very busy during the high season. The town offers lots of cultural events throughout the year.

THE HISTORY OF MOJACAR Mojácar has been populated since the Bronze Age, around 2000 BC, but it was under Moorish rule in the 800s AD when Mojácar really flourished. During the 14th century, there were fierce battles between Christians and Moors as they fought over Andalucia. An important date in the history of Mojácar Pueblo is 10th June 1488, when the Moorish leaders of the region agreed to cede rule to the forces of the Catholic kings. However, the governor of Mojácar refused to join, as he believed that his town was already Spanish. Instead, a delegation sent by the Spanish king came to Mojácar and met with the governor. The governor told the delegation: “I am as Spanish as you. After my people have lived in Spain for more than seven hundred years, you tell us to go. I have never borne arms against the Christians. I therefore believe it is fair that you treat us like brothers, not like enemies, and that you allow us to continue working our land.” So, a pact was agreed which allowed a free association between local Moors, Christians and Jews. This landmark event is commemorated with a plaque at Mojácar’s Moorish fountain, and every year the town celebrates with a huge Moors and Christians Festival, where the whole town dresses in traditional Moorish or Christian clothes, there are parades and music and celebration of the diversity in Mojácar. Mojácar’s good fortunes began to change around the middle of the 19th century when several severe droughts led to mass emigration to northern Spain, other parts of Europe and to South America. The town fell into disrepair as people could no longer afford to maintain them properly. Finally, in the 1960s, the arrival of tourists to the region began to bring money and life back to Mojácar. Mojácar Pueblo Today Today, Mojácar Pueblo is a beautiful town. The people of Mojácar clearly take great pride in the appearance and culture of the town. Every building is painted white, in keeping with the traditional Moorish style of the region, and colourful doors and flower pots create a picturesque setting. Don’t miss the old entrance to the town (below), the archway was once the gateway in the walls which protected the town. Santa Maria Church was also used as a fortress, so from the outside, it is definitely more functional than beautiful. However, take a peek inside and check out the unusual painting of Christ. He is painted looking peaceful and serene, holding a rainbow in his hands, just like the symbol of Mojácar, the Indalo. In the square outside the church, you’ll find a statue of a Mojaquera (a woman from Mojácar) dressed in traditional Moorish clothes, carrying a water jug on her head. Rumour has it, if you touch her breasts you will fall in love with Mojácar and will come back to the town. The Mirador del Castillo has one of the best views in town, where you can see all the way to the sea (which isn’t really that far away!). Plaza Nueva is a meeting point for locals and tourists in Mojácar, and the views across Almeria Province are stunning, especially at sunset. Although Mojácar seems peacefully quiet most of the time, if you happen to visit when there is a festival the town really comes to life. We were there for the “Noche de las Velas” candlelight festival when the town switches off the electricity and thousands of candles light up the night. The streets of Mojácar are even prettier by candlelight, although there are hundreds of visitors too!
