Motril information PDF Print E-mail

Motril is the largest town in the Costa Tropical but property for sale in Motril is a little cheaper than it's neighbouring seaside resort villages of Almunecar and Salobrena. Motril is a very vibrant town important locally for its retail centre and business centre. The port in Motril is a commercial port as well as a haven for yachts and fun craft. Fishing and the transportation of fruit and vegetables for export are crucial to the local economy. Motril church, Costa Tropical, southern Spain

In Arab times Motril was residence to the mother of the King Boabdil and after the Christians conquered it became a prominent town in the region. In the 19th century it became wealthy on the back of the sugar industry and now Motril with it's 50,000 inhabitants are now looking to the tourist industry for its next evolutionary step.

There are many monuments and points of interest such as the Pueblos de America Park, Sugar Cane Interpretation centre, tra. Sra Virgen de la Cabeza Sanctuary, the Victoria Church, the Calderon de la Barca Theatre, the town hall, the Iglesia Mayor de la Incarnacion Church etc. Many dating back to the 16th century.Motril harbour, Costa Tropical, southern Spain

Motril has long, wide beaches  providing plenty of room for everybody so you won't be packed like sardines in the peak month of August. There are many restaurants and bars on the beach providing a great place to eat tapas and relax. Motril has become a regular stopping point for cruise ships with passengers enjoying good shopping and lots of shaded plazas and squares.Plaza in Motil, Costa tropical, southern Spain. Local food to try is Migas, choto al ajillo, fideos a la marianeria, torta real, cazuela de San Juan and lots more besides. In short a good town to live but not as touristy as the other towns of Almunecar and Salobrena and thus is not geared to tourist requirements. Still very Spanish probably about 98%. Well worth a visit.
