The area’s name during the Arab occupation was Yusor, which means “being lucky”. From there comes the name of Fortuna. While water is not abundant is the region to which Fortuna belongs, it does spring up strongly here. The municipality is home to the Leana Spa—the favourite thermal waters of the Romans and a place of tourist interest.

Within its territory is part of the Sierra de la Pila Regional Park, shared with Abaran, Jumilla, and Blanca.

Arid landscapes and green palm trees converge in Fortuna, delighting locals and visitors alike, who long to bathe in its hot springs.
