Alhaurin de la Torre

Alhaurin de la Torre is a large town with a scattering of small villages in the vicinity, situated in the Andalusian province of Malaga. It’s a modern and upbeat town, yet still retains its traditional heritage.

There are parks, squares and children’s playgrounds throughout the town, perfect for family holidays. Portions of the town are mazes of traditional whitewashed terraced homes, some dating back to Moorish times.

Alhaurin de la Torre is perfect for those who wish to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the coast. is far away enough from the busy resorts to not be affected by them, yet close enough so the resort lifestyle can be enjoyed when the fancy takes you.

Alhaurin de la Torre is very close by to Malaga airport, midway between the city of Malaga and Torremolinos. The town is set back from the coastline around 10 kilometres and 15 minutes by car.

History
Phoenician traders were the first settlers in the area, they industrialised the area with silver and lead mines; much later the Moors settled here and the town prospered further. When the Christians took Alhaurin they named it the Garden of Allah (Alhaurin) and the town entered a new boom of settlers.

There are some interesting monuments in Alhaurin de la Torre, including the old church of El Alamillo dating back to 1875 and the Finca el Porton from the turn of the century, where you can wander through its gardens and enjoy the diverse flora and fauna.

Beaches
