With a modest population of 850 residents, you could class this village as one of the hidden gems of the region. The surrounding nature is covered with olive and almond groves: the almond trees blossoming spectacularly in the spring making for a wonderful outlook.
Carratraca is home to one of the original Andalusian medicinal spas. The sulphur water spas here have been used since the Roman times and are still famed for their healing qualities. If taking the waters and fresh, mountain air appeals to you, Carratraca could just be the place for you.
