Mojacar village is a picturesque sight of white washed buildings and steep winding cobbled streets perched high on a hill in the Sierra Cabrera, that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.
Mojacar was at one time a fairly major trade centre for the Greeks and Romans but the Moorish influence is the most visible dating from the 8th century.
There are a number of historical places of interest in Mojacar including La Fuenta (fountain), this is where women wash their clothes and feet in the natural spring water which is said to have flowed here since the roman times, it was restored in 1876.
The Ancient Castillo which dominates the village is now an open viewing platform. Puerta de la Ciudad ( city gate), a semi-circular arch featuring the arms of the town, this is the original site of the main entrance to the village since the Moorish times.
The symbol of Mojacar is the Indalo Man, which is the shape of a man holding an arc between his outstretching arms, It is often painted on the front of houses and is said to bring protection and good luck.
The symbol is associated with neolithic paintings found in the caves of Velez Blanco and is thought to be 4,500 years old.
In June each year there is a Moors and Christians festival which lasts for 3 days, this is well worth seeing, the two sides stage mock battles and true to history the Christians are always victorious.
