The town is situated approx 400m above sea level and because of it's location it has beautiful views to the sea.  There are many older style buildings - Arab in design in and around the town, this and the fantastic location have made this a popular destination for Painters / Artists.

The town has it's roots firmly set from the Arab era, this is evident in it's street design and layout.  The old Mosque is still in the town, but is now privately owned.  The town was a well renowned mining town and the ruins can still be found.  Iron, Copper, Zinc and Lead were extracted and transported to the port of Garrucha for exportation around the world.

At the end of the 19th century when mining was at its peak, Los Gallardos grew to accommodate the many miners and their families.  Although there are a few references to a hamlet close to the town called Cadima, this small hamlet was inhabited by Romans.  There is an archaeological site being excavated prior to the installation of the new AVE train.  The contents of the site are not specific, but it is suggested that there is a villa, associated outbuildings and a small cemetery.

Los Gallardos is located close to the E15/A7 motorway and is bordered by the Los Filabres and the Cabrera mountains and the Aguas river.  The town is also close to Bedar, where many of the aforementioned mines were located.  Los Gallardos has a few bars, restaurants, shops and a few other businesses.  Being located next the motorway offers the ability to get to Almeria Airport in just under 35 minutes and to the coast in less than 15 minutes.

The village of Lubrin is set high in the Los Fillabres mountains and has very steep streets throughout. Built in the 19th century, the village church La Virgen del Rosario has unusual and interesting architecture giving it an odd eclectic feel and is worth a visit.  As you meander through the streets you will come across a few little shops, bars and restaurants.  One such bar, `Los Molinos´ was once voted the best Tapas bar in the whole of Almeria and is well worth a visit.  The villagers here in this beautiful place make their living from agriculture and livestock, which they rear and grow in the surrounding mountains.
