The village of Castillèjar is one of the six Andalusian hamlets that make up the region of Huèscar in the Province of Granada. With a population of around 2,000, this idyllic haven is tucked away and yet easily accessible at just 15 minutes off the A-92 Mediterranean Motorway and just over an hour from Granada City. The main town of Huèscar is only a short drive away.

At 766 metres above sea level, the stunning little hamlet is one of the prettiest and least spoilt areas in Andalusia and is well worth a visit. 

Sitting between the two rivers Guardal and Barbatas, this enclave has, over the centuries, been witness to the passing of important historic settlers of many different cultures of the Iberian Peninsula. Nowadays it is the perfect stopping point for visitors to the nearby Natural Parks, with many Cafes and bars, an Ecomuseum and weekly market.
