Fernán Pérez from Cabo de Gata

Fernán Pérez is one of the few villages in the interior, although very close to the coast, of the Natural Park, it still preserves the rural charm of yesteryear, small white houses, the church, the school, the small square ...

The Aqueduct of the Cortijo "Huerta Grande" is striking. . The aqueduct works began at the end of the 19th century, it is formed by a floor of 42 arches, 170m long. The main arch, on the promenade, has a height of 9m and a width of 6.3m. the rest of the arches have a variable height depending on the slope, and the ditch that runs over it has a section of 30x30cm.

The place name of this word is of popular origin of the repopulators of Fernando Pérez. It is a small nucleus of about 240 inhabitants, one of the oldest in the region. It was created in the middle of the 18th century thanks to a general improvement in crops, the almost disappearance of epidemics that devastated the population during the 17th century, and the coastal security that was possible thanks to the batteries of San Ramón in Rodalquilar.

It is not a town with recognized tourist infrastructures, although if what you are looking for is a rural environment accompanied by tranquility, this is the right place.

Its people live mainly from livestock and agriculture, and it is located very close to Las Negras.
