It is a small town that has very familiar habits. Much of his municipality is located in the Sierra Nevada National Park so it is a very good location for starting your excursions. It is for example one of the starting points for climbing up to the Picon de Jerez, one of the three thousand meters of Sierra Nevada. There is a very nice recreational area located just two kilometers from the village, with picnic tables and small bridges crossing the river.
