Things to do on Holiday in Loja Spain

From your holiday villa or town house in Loja it is about 2 kilometres to the Los Infiernos de Loja Natural Monument. This is an area of great ecological value due to the scarce plant species, requiring a high degree of humidity to grow, found here. The river has carved out the Alto Infiernos and Bajo Infiernos and also numerous waterfalls like the Cola del Caballo cascading impressively down on to the rocks creating a fantastic landscape. Also the limestone geology found in this area makes a heaven for spelunkers, walkers and cavers.

The scenery found in this valley near to your Loja holiday villa varies to a great degree, in some places there are barren limestone landscapes while in other areas there are lush undulating hills covered in olive groves with old picturesque rock farmhouses scattered amongst it. The Loja side of the valley is a great place for walking, mountain biking and horse riding. There are trails with different degrees of difficulty to choose from or you can proceed to the top of the mountain and para-glide down. What's fun is to make your way to the top and glide back down near to your holiday villa making it a short walk home!

The town of Loja is a veritable history buffs playground being rich in Muslim heritage up to when it was taken over by the Christians in the 14th century.

Close to your holiday villa or apartment in Loja is the Fuente de la Mora which is a huge fountain with 25 spouts and is a must see during your stay in Loja.
