If there is still time we will start our projects. Stop for lunch. Afternoon working on our projects until approx 5.30. Return to Almunecar

The sculpture park is a tropical arboretum & has stunning original sculptures illustrating Phoenician/Syrian mythology & history, celebrating the historical ties between this area of Spain & Arabic culture over hundreds of years. Also here are the Phoenician & Roman ruins of salt & fish processing, overlooked by the Arabic castle atop the cliffs. After a lovely stroll & shopping we will have lunch in town and then carry on a little more with our day in Almunecar.
