A thriving market town with a rising population of approx 13,000, inclusive of a large English community.

Albox is located in the heart of the Almanzora Valley and boasts all the amenities of a large town.  The Market is held every Tuesday morning and lines the road in the town next to the rambla, the rambla is used as the car park - rather dangerous as in 1972, the rambla flooded knocking one the main bridges down killing many people.  The rambla does flood every now and again, but nothing to the extent recorded on that fateful day.

The town has several supermarkets and plenty of small supermarkets selling English products.  There are plenty of restaurants and bars to keep you busy and lots of little boutiques and smaller shops.

Of course there are plenty of estate agents selling their wares, and is quite notorious at the moment for having a problem with its illegally built properties - lets hope the local and regional Governments sort their act out soon.  So buyer be warned - do your homework before buying!!!

The area itself is very picturesque and has a rugged charm, surrounded by almond and olive groves which when in flower are absolutely stunning.

 

Almanzora:
