History of Almuñécar
Almuñécar's Phoenician name 'Sks' was translated by the Romans as Sexi Firmun Julium, and that is why the inhabitants of Almuñécar are known as Sexitanos.

towers of the castle of almunecar This gives us an idea of the antiquity of this millennial town that has seen the integration of many cultures, sheltered by the mountains of Granada and bathed by the Mediterranean Sea.

The city of Almuñécar was founded by the Phoenicians in the eighth century BC, and during the Roman rule in the first and second centuries it reached its great zenith.

However, the name by which we know it today has an Arabic origin, since these people were its inhabitants for almost 800 years.

'Al-Munekab' or 'Hisn al-Monácar' refers to a fortress on the hill surrounded by mountains. This land can boast Phoenician, Roman and Arab remains in its monumental heritage.

The town's Arab roots can be seen in the watchtowers that are found on some of its beaches, the reservoirs, and the layout of its streets.

All this has defined Almuñécar's own identity, making it quite unique and very special.

Nature and Climate of Almuñécar
Almuñécar, blessed with a mild and subtropical climate throughout the year, also has an immense natural wealth in its inland areas.
