Rural Walks. Ojén (in English)
Ojen's town centre sits perched up high, on an outcrop of almost cliff rock face which is highly typical of Andalusian villages in general.
It is yet another wonderful example of splendid architecture and style so common to the region. The narrow and somewhat hidden streets speak of its Arab past with many of the houses built into the rocky outcrop itself. Visitors are treated to lovely white-washed walls covered by hanging jasmine and bougainvilleas in all their splendour, windows and balconies covered with exquisitely designed and ironwork, Arab style roof tiles, all of which are true marks of a typical Andalusian village scene. The upper part of the village, with its Miradores, has changed little over the centuries and still offer visitors the chance to rest and breathe in some crisp clean air as they contemplate some of the fantastic panoramic views of the village and the surrounding area as the blue sea and the sky almost blend together on the horizon.
