The town of Alhama is huddled round a hill topped by a ruined, angular tower. It is surrounded by the green agricultural land of the Guadalentin valley. The thermal waters at Alhama led the Romans to build baths there and remains of these baths can be seen today. Also worth visiting is the Church of San Lazaro, a baroque style church built in the 18th century.
Neaby are the natural parks in the valley of Leyva and the peak of Morron, which is 1584m high and popular with climbers. here are also old snow wells in the area.
Just east of Alhama, located next to the N340 motorway is the village of Librilla with a population of 3,700.
The town has numerous hotels, restaurants and a camping area in the nearby Sierra.
Alhama is located a few kilometres off the N340 motorway, 30km from Murcia. San Javier airport is 35km, Alicante airport is 95km, and Almeria airport is 180km.
