Villaricos is a simple and charming fishing village, perched between the Sierra de Almagrera and the sea, flanked by the Almanzora River. Dating back to Neolithic times, Villaricos was once a great Phoenician port. Forgotten by history for thousands of years, it resurfaced as a silver mining town in the 19th century before finally becoming a charming fishing village with its own character and identity. Every early morning, the men go out to sea to fish, farm, or work in local marble quarries. The women take their children to school and chat. Life has a traditional rhythm of its own. Every weekend its people gather in the small and old town square where, like every Sunday, a colorful market thrives. The authentic charm of Villaricos lies in its simplicity and warmth of spirit, it is this lack of pretense that captivates all its visitors.
