Alhama lies in the valley of the river Guadalentin at the foot of the Sierra Espuña. There are defense towers, ruined town walls, renaissance-style palaces and mansions of the former nobility in the town. The hot spring that dates back to the Romans and Moors, gives Alhama its name. Al-hama means hot springs in Arabic and the Roman baths that date back to the 1st century AD are still used today. On the rocky outcrop overlooking the town stands a 12th century Arab castle, around which the town developed. Alhama is only a ten minute drive from Totana and there is easy access from the E15 Motorway. The new Motorway being built will join the E15 to the Motorway at Cartagena and so to La Manga. Again Alhama is a typically Spanish town with a good market on Tuesday mornings. Walking and cycling enthusiasts will find the gateway to Sierra Espuña from Alhama.
