Cortijo la Cerradilla, 04210 Lucainena de las Torres, Almería

 

Español:

 

Viniendo desde el principal Tabernas - Sorbas carretera se llega en Lucainena. Después de una curva cerrada seguir hacia Níjar

 

No subir la colina hacia el centro de la ciudad!
 

Un poco más de un kilómetro más allá de la ciudad podrás ver signos de un puente (el segundo). Casi frente a la "orientación prioritaria" signo es nuestro impulso hacia la izquierda. 

 

Baja por ella, más allá de la primera casa ya través de la "Vía Verde" y cuando se puede ir más lejos: ha llegado!

Directions from the North

From St Javier (Murcia Airport): take the road towards Cartagena and join the motorway. After 10 minutes or so veer off following signs for Almeria (and Murcia, but don’t be fooled by that). The motorway then has toll booths. Continue to its end (near Vera). Take A7/E15 briefly towards Almeria.

From Alicante Airport: take signposts towards Murcia and join A7/E15. When in Murcia outskirts continue on E15 towards Almeria.

From the A7/E15. Leave at exit 514 to join N-340A. Continue until you pass through Sorbas (the cliff-hanging town you’ll pass on this road) and after 3 km or so you come to a long straight stretch. Shortly after that ends is the left turn to AL-102 Lucainena de las Torres. Continue as at kilometre point 58 above.
