Alora lies just below the so-called ¨golden city triangle¨; Cordoba, Granada, Seville. The large and typical Spanish village, with over 14.000 inhabitants, is a perfect base for exploring different places and discovering beautiful nature.
Alora is nestled between three large rocks and crowned by the beautiful ruins of an old Arab castle. The views from the terrace in front of this castle are exceptional! The village has a unique Andalusian feel, with its steep streets and whitewashed houses. In between the historical features, like the second oldest church in Spain, there are also a lot of modern facilities, such as medical centre, a cinema, lots of bars, restaurants and supermarkets, a local sports complex and a large public swimming pool!
The annual fiestas are the perfect way to indulge yourself in the Andalusian lifestyle and during the week you can visit different markets and explore the beautiful surroundings of the village. The Ardales lakes, where you can practice all kinds of water sports or go hiking, are just a stone´s throw away. The famous Camino del Rey and the nature reserve of El Torcal are also close and make you feel especially lucky to live in such a beautiful area.
Alora is 45 minutes (45 km.) from the city of Málaga and the airport. The beaches of the Costa del Sol are a 40 minute (48 km.) drive away.
