Description

Facinas is a beautiful village near Tarifa, situated in the Campo de Gibraltar region, very close to the coast but with a distinctly mountain feel to it.

It perches at the south-west end of the Béticas mountain range, on the north-west face of the Sierra de Saladaviciosa mountains, which together with the Fates and Enmedio mountains form the range that cuts across the municipal district of Tarifa.

Despite a deep-rooted tradition of farming and livestock raising, nowadays the principal pillars of its economy are the hotel and catering trade, construction and various activities concerned with the maintenance and exploitation (firewood and cork) of the publicly owned land in the Alcornocales Nature Reserve, plus a firm commitment to rural and coastal tourism.
