On stepping out of the apartment we find ourselves in a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets taking us through the history of the Arabic quarter between it´s houses and monuments: the Cathedral de la Incarnation, Wamba fountain ,the castle……. Lost amongst it´s architecture and alleyways we soon refind ourselves on the path into the impressive gorge with it´s old mills, river and nature in all it´s splendour. On another route we encounter the hot thermal springs which give the Arabic name to this town, located a ten minute stroll away. The main town centre with it´s modern amenities is a 5 minute walk away, banks, shops ,restaurants and numerous bars offering a selection of good wines and drinks served with their delicious complimentary tapas that vary with the proud culinary touch of each bar.
In search of relaxation and refreshment we have two public swimming pools, one of which has one of Alhama’s best restaurants. There are two spas offering Arabic baths, massages and an array of therapeutic treatments.
