The village of Serón, Almeria, is situated on the northern slopes of the Sierra de los Filabres. At an altitude of just over 800 metres, it is one of the few Almerian towns that is ideal for both those interested in rural areas of Andalucia and for those who prefer discovering the local culture.


The first thing that tourists will see is the striking castle that crowns the village centre and from which visitors can get an amazing panoramic view of the Almanzora valley. The Moorish castle was constructed during the 13th century and has undergone many diverse transformations throughout the centuries since then. The most prominent addition is the notably neoclassical tower which was added at some point during the 19th century. In any case, this fortress has put Serón on the map as part of the Ruta de los Castillos (The Castle Route) throughout Andalucia.

Parroquial de la Anunciacion ChurchSerón boasts a rich heritage of art and history which visitors can see in the Parroquial de la Anunciación Church, a declared historical monument that still has a beautiful Mudejar weaponary; the Ermita de la Virgen de los Remdios in the Plaza de Arriba (Shrine to the Virgin of the Remedies), constructed in the 19th century with a neoclassical style; and the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) building dating from the end of the 19th century.

Other attractions around Serón include its caves, such as the Sarna cave or the Morciguilla cave, where Neolithic remains have been found. Visitors can also find lots of hidden natural beauty spots along the Las Menas-Pozo de las Nieves and Los Angostos-Jordana walking routes.
