El Valle de Lecrin (The Lecrin Valley) is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is famous for its landscape of orange and lemon groves, almond and olive trees and fruits of pomegranate and grapes. The valley has been inhabited since prehistoric times due to its excellent climatic conditions and was chosen by the Moors for it's fertile land and they helped create the irrigation system we see today throughout the valley. Today it's amazing views up to the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, down through the lush valley to the waters of Lake Beznar and to the mountains beyond which run down to the Costa Tropical coastline make it an ideal location to be enjoyed by it's many visitors.
