Letur is a beautiful part of the world and there are a lot
of sites that you might want to take in. The waterfall, for instance, is
something worthy of your time. The fall feeds several smaller ‘drops’, each one
as beautiful as the one before it. The crystal clear waters make the perfect
backdrop for the obligatory holiday snaps and selfies.
The waterfall really does need to be visited when you
visit the town. There are not many ‘out of towners’ either, which should help
make your visit that much more pleasant (nobody likes a jostling crowd).

mentioning the various fiestas and celebrations. The feast of Corpus Christi,
over in Elche de la Sierra, for example, is something you won't want to miss.

experience the running of the bulls in Letur, although caution is strongly
advised as this, understandably, can be dangerous for the unwary.
It is also worth mentioning that there is a healthy
hunting industry in the province as a whole, with the main ‘target’ being
partridge. The fishing here is also excellent, but we wouldn’t recommend trying
this at the waterfall of Letur!

intend to stay awhile there are plenty of hotels nearby.
