Albox is nestled between the Sierra de las Estancias and the Sierra de los Filabres mountain ranges, a short distance from the Almanzora river. It is a typical whitewashed town with narrow streets interspersed with small plazas. As a small agricultural town it is surrounded by olive groves and lemon and orange orchards.
The origin of Albox is medieval and the remains of an ancient fort can be found on a nearby hill. In 1503 an earthquake destroyed it and many of its historical buildings were lost. It has been completely reconstructed in its present location.
Albox and the surrounding area offer a number of outdoor pursuits for the visitor. There are a multitude of country areas to walk and explore, horse riding, cycling or off-roading in a 4WD. The area is also home to Europe's biggest observatory.
Many of the local traditions in Albox remain, including ceramics. Two celebrated ceramicist families. Herminio and the Ends, remain in Albox. Their pottery factories still cook the mud in the old Arab furnaces and produce popular decorative ceramics, mostly earthenware.
There is a flourishing weekly market held on Tuesdays that is one of the features of Albox. The market spans through the streets into the Rambla (a dry riverbed) and here you can buy everything from clothes to livestock.
