Plaza Nueva Viewpoint
This plaza is undoubtedly the centre of life in Mojácar. Full of atmosphere and life, it is the ideal spot to begin our visit, or to simply sit or to watch the sun go down. From the viewpoint you can see over the large valley bordered by the Cabrera, Bédar and Almagrera mountains. Right in front we can see the bed of the Aguas, the river which flows past Mojácar La Vieja (the former site of Mojácar) before coming out into the lagoon.
We can also make out the neighbouring towns of Turre, Bédar, Los Gallardos, Vera, Garrucha, Cuevas del Almanzora, Villaricos, and of course, Mojácar’s market gardens. The viewpoint has been renovated in 2017.
The plaza is also the site of the privately-owned 16th century Nuestra Señora de los Dolores hermitage.
