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.

Places of interest
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
The nearest beaches are those of La Colina, a suburb to the east of Torremolinos. The drive down takes around 15 minutes.

Golf
The closest golf courses to Alhaurin de la Torre are Lauro Golf and Parador Golf in Malaga. Lauro Golf is an inland golf course, and one of the best value for money courses on the Costa del Golf, they have a 27 holes designed by Falco Nardi. Parador Golf in Malaga is the oldest course on the Costa del Sol; a woodland course situated right on the beach, it is also home to many colourful birds.

Cuisine
Alhaurin de la Torre’s cuisine is typical of the area, with lots of seafood and rice on the menu. There are numerous tapas bars, restaurants and cafés in town and a diverse choice of local and international gastronomy.

Tapas are a delicious way to enjoy a relaxed meal, and although the portions are naturally small there is no limit to how many portions you can have. Traditional bars will often give you a small amount of tapas for free with a caña (small beer).

Climate

Alhaurín de la Torre review

The town has most/all facilities needed. Tricky to get food on Sundays and Mondays with the working hours in Spain. Interesting and pleasant community though.


Costa del Sol reviews

Didn't really use the coastal facilities but mountainous back drop is spectacular. Nearby Malaga is vibrant and beautiful especially the old town with much interesting architecture and sights.
