The drive to this restaurant will take you through Almeria’s desert interior, which is the only official desert in Europe.
Upon entering the pretty village of Vélez Blanco you could first head to the stunning Renaissance castle, which towers over the village. Built in the early 16th century, it is worth the visit, both for the castle itself and for the fantastic views overlooking the village and beyond.
The castle closes at 2pm, which is perfect, as this is when lunch begins here.
Head for this very good traditional restaurant in the village.
This is down below the castle, off the main road into the villa...
