Lecrín – The Valley of Joy

This peaceful area is practically untouched by tourism and retains much of its local charm. After a short drive from Lanjarón, you will reach the town of Veluz de Benaudalla, which is located in the heart of the Andalucian countryside. Here you will visit a museum dedicated to the production of olive oil for which this area is famed. You will have the opportunity to taste some of the olive oil before visiting the town of Salobreña. Its beaches and pleasant temperatures make it an ideal all-year-round destination.
