Villa de Gata (town)
The town of Gata, also declared Historic-Artistic Complex is located at the foot of the mountains, in a pleasant valley. It is surrounded by the rugged peaks of steep mountains that only leave a corridor open to the west: Sierra del Salio, to the south, on the border with Tower Don Miguel, and Jañonas, reaching over 1300 meters in the east.
This stunning geography makes the town enjoy a moderate climate, protected from the cold north winds. It lies 37 km from our SPA Hotel in the Sierra de Gata.
Outstanding monuments in Gata:
Iglesia de San Pedro: Perhaps the most important religious building of the Shire.
Ruinas del Convento Franciscano: Prior to 1339, is located in an area known as "El Hoyo".
La Torre de Almenara: One of the most prominent symbols of Sierra de Gata.
