Fuente Alamo is located 5 minutes drive from the Hacienda
Del Alamo golf resort and approximately 35 kilometres from
the region's capital, a short 30-minute drive from the blue
flag beaches of Mazarron and the historic city of Cartagena
and set amongst the beautiful scenery of the Carrascoy Regional
Park. This busy inland market town is well connected, enjoys
a year round pleasant climate and is becoming an extremely
popular place for rural tourism. Fuente Alamo is steeped
in history and dates back to the 16th century.
There are lots of places to go exploring in and around
including the nearby village of La
Pinilla, which is set to the south east of Fuente Alamo.
The Carrascoy Regional Park is an ideal place for walking,
cycling and bird watching. It is nestled between the municipalities
of Alhama de Murcia, Fuente Alamo and Murcia City. For those
who like a real challenge, a climb to the top of the Carrascoy
Mountain, which is 1065 meters high, provides fantastic
panoramic views of the area.
The municipality of Fuente Alamo has recently been rediscovered
by holidaymakers and ex-pats that are looking for a quieter
place to live than the busier seaside towns of the Mar Menor.
Due to the expanding population, the infrastructure of the
town has also been improved dramatically over the last three
years. There are now three schools in Fuente Alamo, two
state- run and one private, one health centre, sports facilities,
and a multitude of shops, bars and restaurants as well as
an extremely busy bustling Saturday market. The market is
held on the Murcia Avenue next to the sports facility.
The village of Fuente Alamo comes alive at night-time and
especially at this time of year when it is full of rural
holidaymakers. There are four nightclubs in Fuente Alamo
as well as numerous bars, making it an ideal choice for
a great weekend away. August is definitely the month to
be in Fuente Alamo as this is the time when their annual
festivals take place. The celebrations in Fuente Alamo will
officially begin on Friday 18 Th August. This year's fiestas
are packed full of live music, dancing, markets, competitions
and theatrical performances.
