Located at the heart of the mountains on rugged terrain populated with olives, almond trees and pines.

The village stands on the side of a hill, still retaining its original Arabic layout, with steep, narrow streets of white houses, many of which are of recent construction.

Reminiscences of its past are provided by prehistoric paintings at La Venta del Fraile and the remains of Almogia and Sancti Petri Castles.
