The Town is the result of the union of two smaller settlements: Huercal and Overa.  It is the chief town of a thriving agricultural district.  The town is taken over every Monday by it's large street market.  It has a good variety of shopping, with 5 supermarkets, numerous bars, cafes and restaurants and lots of little streets to find those niche little shops.

The town now boasts one of the best and newest hospitals in Spain, offering huge employment prospects to the locals.  There is a Municipal outdoor swimming pool and leisure centre and in the near future the construction of the indoor swimming pool will soon finish.

The village is set in the hills north of Huercal Overa, not a lot goes on here, apart from the fiestas.  The scenery is gorgeous, this has been emphasised by the fact the council have constructed a vista point up above the village.

A very tranquil setting, but a car is a must.

The village has been extensively developed with lots of new build villas popping up like daisies in a field.  Of course with the new villas come the ex-pats, and with them prosperity.
