Amazing almond blossom

Amazing almond blossom of the Lecrin Valley

The Lecrin Valley

No matter how many years you spend living in or visiting the Lecrin Valley, you will never tire of the amazing spectacle every January and February when the almond blossom is in full bloom.

The new blossom heralds the spring, bringing the Lecrin Valley and surrounding hills to life at the end of the winter. It’s so incredibly beautiful with the soft pink flowers contrasted against the rugged rockiness of the Andalucian landscape.
