It is located only 3 minutes drive from Rojales and Formentera del Segura. Getting away from the crowded beaches can give you the opportunity to get the feel of Spain while maintaining its historical perspective, It also has accommodations for the tourist such as hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, guesthouses, and apartments. Part of touring a foreign country is sampling the regional specialties, and there are fine restaurants and cafes in this charming village that will provide you with an excellent meal.

The shops will offer you many locally produced items when you are looking for souvenirs. Besides the shops and restaurants, you can also tour the parish church, and when tired from shopping and sightseeing take some time to enjoy a glass of wine in a local bar.
