DISCOVER THE SOURRONDINGS
Turre

Among the monuments in this Almerian locality one finds the Purísima parish church, built in the 16th century in the Mudejar style and remodelled in the 18th century. Another building with these characteristics is the St. Francis of Assisi hermitage, built in the 17th century.

One of the possibilities which Turre offers is to visit its numerous archaeological sites, among which stand out are: the Castellón hill, where there are remains of Gata’s agricultural settlement; the Iberian and Roman remains of Los Gallardos; the Hispanic-Muslim site of the Teresa settlement, where there are Upper Paleolithic and Neolithic remains; and the settlements of Cabrera, also Hispanic-Muslim.

The menus featuring Turre’s typical gastronomy include dishes such as “migas con tropezones”, “pelotas”, “gurullos” with rabbit and partridge, “olla de trigo”, snails, “fritaílla” and “ajo colorao”. And for those with a sweet tooth, Turre menus feature the fabulous “tallinas”.
