However, it can be chilly in the evenings during the winter months due to the geographic altitude, so warm comfortable clothes are recommended.
Industry ... they grow a lot of stuff in Frailes
Spain is heavily reliant on farming, building and of course tourism. Hondon de los Frailes, like many in the Hondon Valley, is a typical rural Spanish agricultural village and reflected in it's housing and structure. In general it is a tranquil location. The farming of olives, almonds and grapes are the dominant crops and the locals work the land all-year-round. But you will find many vegetables on offer, including tomatoes, spring onions, artichokes and more. Stavia is a latest addition to the area. So harvest is a busy time of year and sees a big influx of migrant workers and casual labour. It's a pleasant sight to see the fruit and veg' you have been watching grow all year now being ready to eat! And very cheap at the local markets.
Friendly and Family Orientated
There is now a new and bigger town hall and cultural centre. The main Village Plaza is the focal point for most events here, including the ever popular fiestas and parades such as "The Three Kings" and "Water Fight". Spain is still quite a religious location and the central church is a family focal point. It has recently been refurbished and the bells repaired at last!.
In general the bars, shops and restaurants have improved the decor and capacity. The feel of the village is still very much a Spanish "cafe culture" outdoor living. Enjoying those lazy hot summer days is a must and so easy to embrace. The Town Hall are proud to offer a mixture of tradition and modern events through their Fiestas, religion and community events. You'll be amazed how these small Spanish villages manage to put on a show.
