Turning off the A95 on the Lorca to Granada stretch, heading north, you will find the villages of Los Vélez. The town of Velez Rubio is 847m above sea level and forms part of the Sierra María-Los Vélez Natural Park and the Ruta de los Castillos, route of castles, through Andalusia. During the short winter months temperatures drop and it is not unknown for this region to see snow but rarely for long or at great depth. During the rest of the year temperatures soar to match the rest of the region of this sunny south-east corner of Spain.
The town is a thriving centre of activity with modern shops and restaurants. There has been a human presence here for over 30,000 years and the entire area is steeped in history. There are many historic buildings to visit in the town and the surrounding area is breathtakingly beautiful-
There is a lot to do in the Natural Park. Lovers of hiking are able to choose between various, signed, routes such as the Pinar de las Muellas, Sierra Larga or Solana del Maimón. However, the best way to know what is on offer at the park is to get in touch with the Centro de Visitantes, Almacén del Trigo, which is on Marqués de Los Vélez avenue in Velez Blanco which is just a few kilometres away, further up in the Sierra. This is a popular destination for lovers of rural tourism and sports as well as lovers of culture and history.
