Vinuela is famous for its large reservoir that provides not only water but a great recreational area for locals and tourists alike. Set in a beautiful valley, Lake Vinuela is a charming place to visit.
Lake Vinuela lies within the heart of some of Andalucia's most spectactular scenery in Axarquia. A man-made reservoir which, as well as serving the purpose of providing thousands of homes with water, in an aesthetic sense has become an important part of the local landscape. Before the area was flooded to create the reservoir, many sites were excavated providing finds from Neolithic and Roman eras.
As the lake is a reservoir, no motor boats are allowed so simple sailing boats and canoes are the only vessels to disturb the flat calm of the surface. Around the southern end of the lake picnic tables and barbeques have been scattered, all with fantastic views of the water and mountains behind.
The lake took its name from the nearby village of Vinuela which nestles in a valley laden with olive groves, vines and cereal crops.
Two tributaries of the River Velez, the Guaro and the Seco, run through the municipality. Guaro River was dammed to create the reservoir that now holds 170 million cubic metres of water.
