About the Area:
The municipality of Vélez-Rubio is the capital of Los Vélez district, forming part of the Sierra María-Los Vélez Natural Park. It has been declared an official Place of Cultural Interest due to its historical heritage and is a very popular destination for tourists.
The Iglesia de la Encarnación, which can be seen from any point in the village, is a must-see and is one of the buildings of particular historical and cultural interest that makes this place so special.
It has been declared a National Historical Monument and was built in the 18th century on top of the remains of what was the San Pedro church. It is one of the best examples of baroque architecture in Almeria. It has an imposing carved facade which includes the arms of the Marquises of Villafranca y Vélez, who built it. Inside, the main altar has a superbly detailed, 20-metre-high carved wood ´retablo´.
To taste the traditional gastronomic delicacies of this area, you have to order dishes such as the egg broth, specially-cooked goats’ meat, ´trigo guisado´, ´fritada de sangre´ or fried breadcrumbs with meat (migas). For dessert, you must try the almond cakes and the liquor and orange doughnuts.
