Lubrin

Lubrin is both a village and a municipal (parish), set within the Sierra Los Filabres in rural Almeria, Andalusia. The quiet village is an excellent destination for those seeking a traditional Andalusian hideaway. Situated around 45 kilometres from the beaches at Mojacar and 72 kilometres from the city of Almeria.

History
Lubrin’s history stretches back some 3.5 million years, when first man leaves Africa and arrives in the Almanzora Valley. After which, there is evidence that Neanderthal man settled in the region some 100,000 years ago. You can visit The Cave of Bats, with its rock paintings, along the road to El Marchael and the carvings on the Stones of Wax in El Campico.

The area was occupied by the Moors and there are the remains of an Arabic Fort closeby. However, it’s fixed origins, when Lubrin became a village in its own right, dates to 1578, when it became the estate of the Marquis of Carpio and the Dukes of Alba and a medieval settlement for the estate workers.

About Town
Lubrin itself is small, but offers all the basic amenities you will need for a rural retreat. There are several bars and cafes, including Los Molinos restaurant, which is renowned throughout Almeria for its superb tapas. Small supermarkets, shops and traders will supply you daily with locally baked bread, meat, vegetables, etc. Plus there is a Wednesday market, which provides all you will need for a week’s shop. The parish of Lubrin is made up of 20 small villages and hamlets, so if you can’t find what you need in Lubrin, you will find it closeby.

The style of the village is typically Andalusian, and there are some interesting cultural attractions to visit, such as the 19th century parish Church de la Virgen del Rosario, the Monument to the Stonecutter, is a popular tourist attraction. The statue is in honour of the men who mined the rich marble deposits and make the town prosper in the 19th century. 

Local Festivals:
Lubrin is the village of light during the month of August. Celebrating the Festival of Lights, it presents a series of outdoor theatrical events and concerts. Visitors come from all around to enjoy the activities.

On the 20th January the villagers of Lubrin celebrate the Fiesta del Pan (Bread Festival), which honours San Sebastian. Delicious local breads are baked and stuffed with anchovies, blood or garlic sausages, and eaten with gusto! And during October the village celebrates its patron saint, the Virgen del Rosario.

Local surroundings
The views from Lubrin are stunning, looking out over the Sierra Los Filabres, the sleepy and tranquil town, stretches out to meet the green hills and valleys that are so popular with outdoor pursuits enthusiasts.

Gastronomy
Delicious, rustic cuisine wins through in Lubrin. Fish, tomato and garlic stew, or a stew made with pork, tomatoes, spices and wheat berries is also a typical local dish.

Climate
Lubrin is situated inland on the Costa Almeria, one of the driest and sunniest locations in Europe. The region boasts clear, sunny days nearly all year round.

Costa Almería reviews

Mojacar area is about 50 mins drive away and is the main coastal resort - quite lively but very pleasant.

Lubrín review

kleines gemütliches Dorf am Rande der Sierra de los Filabres. 30 km zum Strand deshalb eher für eine Wanderurlaub geeignet. Aphotheke und Restaurant sowie ein kleiner Supermarkt vorhanden.


Costa Almería reviews

viele englische Touristen .wenige schöne Strandabschnitte. Leider ist ein großer Teil der Küste von Gewächshausplanen bedeckt. Die sehen nicht schön aus wenn sie vom Wind teilweise zerfetzt hängen.
