Cuevas del Almanzora

 Silver and the bourgeoisie is a walking tour of the historical centre of Cuevas del Almanzora, a journey through the history of the 19th century, when silver deposits were discovered in the ravine El Jaroso de la Sierra de Almagrera.  This discovery represented a major economic boom that was reflected in the lives of the people, especially in their homes, which we can still observe today.

The palatial homes and mansions with their historical facades and grilles, and interiors boasting wooden floors and marble staircases, with tempera paintings on the ceilings and walls, make this visit an evocative excursion to a 19th century Cuevas del Almanzora that shone with splendour.

We will finish the walk at the castle of Marquis de los Vélez, where you will have approximately 30 minutes free time to visit the museums located inside, such as the Archaeological Museum, Sala Goya and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Antonio Manuel Campoy

You can also visit the traditional market held on Tuesdays and cool off with a drink and a typical tapa.

WE RECOMMENDWear comfortable clothing and footwear, and bring sun protection such as a cap or a hat, and sun screen.
