From throughout the village there are magnificent views over the turquoise waters of Lake Vinuela towards the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Tejeda mountains, snowcapped in winter.
Los Romanes hosts three main annual, and many smaller, festivals. The first is during the first weekend in May when a romeria, involving a 4 kilometre procession following a scenic route around the lake, takes place. Refreshments and tapas are provided free-of-charge along the way. The three-day event finishes in a picturesque spot beside the lake with camping, BBQs, picnics, beer tents, horse shows and other amusements and attractions.
The main town festival takes place in mid-August when again different types of music plus flamenco are performed and huge pans of paella are cooked in the streets.
