Alhaurín el Grande is one of the biggest and most vibrant towns in the area, with a privileged location on the skirts of the mountain ‘Sierra de Mijas', overlooking the Guadalhorce valley. The village is close to the city of Málaga and just a short drive from the coastal areas of La Cala de Mijas and Fuengirola. The Arabs named it ‘Jardín de Alá', translated as ‘Ala's Garden'. Later, the Catholic Kings added ‘El Grande' (the big one) to distinguish it from its sister town Alhaurín de la Torre. Currently its economy is focused on trade and agriculture, which was the main economic engine of the region 1000 years ago when oil, wheat and figs were already produced and delivered to Málaga city and port. Its inhabitants are known as alhaurinos but there is also a large presence of foreigners settled in the town. Besides the historic buildings, fincas and townhouses, there are also many modern apartments and a large golf complex located in Alhaurín el Grande. There is a big variety of restaurants, bars and shops were locals mix with other nationalities. The main plaza is always busy and vibrant. Besides that, it offers a superb view of the valley. The village offers the best of both worlds: coast and inland!
The village of Alhaurín el Grande is located just 25 minutes (22 km.) from the city of Málaga and the airport. The beaches of the Costa del Sol (Fuengirola/Mijas) are only a 15 minute (18 km.) drive away.
