Alhaurín el Grande
The Essential
This bright and elegant village stands on a hill in the Sierra de Mijas among orchards, citrus plantations and olive groves. Take time to stroll through its old quarter, characterised by narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses resplendent with flowers, which still bears remnants of its Moorish ramparts including the Cobertizo arch. The Vera Cruz hermitage is an unusual neo-Gothic structure built in the 20C.
