Traditional white-washed Spanish market town of Albox is thriving

ALBOX: The diamond at the heart of Almeria

By Sean Campbell

THE PERENIALLY popular town of Albox is thriving in 2017.

Situated in Almeria, within the heart of the Almanzora valley, this multicultural delight is just a short drive inland through eye-capturing mountain ranges and luscious countryside full of olive groves and citrus orchards.

A traditional white-washed Spanish market town, it is home to around 11,000 inhabitants, many of whom are British expats.

Residents can relax about their health with a 24 hour medical centre and major hospital Huercal Overa just short drive away.

If you need to cool off in the heat then there is a huge municipal swimming pool, a typical feature of inland Spanish towns.

Several fiestas are held each  year where everyone gets together and showcases a fantastic community spirit.

Plentiful markets are held Tuesday and Saturday mornings where the streets fill with a vast array of stalls selling everything from meat and cakes to candles and incense.

Albox has the perfect all-year round temperate climate with temperatures rarely falling below 18ºC and clear blue skies are a regular sight. During the summer months the temperature rises to around 30ºC with autumn generally milder but still warm between 23 and 27 degrees celsius.
