The Andalucia region
Its area is 7,308 km² and its population is 1,639.127 (2012), which is concentrated mainly in the metropolitan area of Málaga, province capital, and throughout the coastal area. The population density surpasses both the Andalusia and Spanish averages, reaching 222.53 hab/km². Málaga contains 101 municipalities. Besides the capital, its main cities are Marbella, Mijas, Fuengirola, Vélez-Málaga, Torremolinos, Estepona and Benalmádena, all in the coastal zone. The towns of Antequera and Ronda, are located in the interior.
The prevailing climate is a warm Mediterranean with dry and warm long summers with short mild winters. The geographical relief varies greatly from zone to zone. In general, the coastal zone has a subtropical Mediterranean climate. To the north, a Continental Mediterranean climate exists with cold, dry winters and warm summers.
Its main industry and claim to fame is its tourist resorts, particularly those on the beaches along the Costa del Sol ("Sun Coast"). These beaches are visited by millions of European tourists. But the province has some very interesting places to visit, like the gorge of El Chorro, near Álora, the Torcal de Antequera, the Moorish-Mudéjar district of Frigiliana, the Dolmen of Menga or the Caves of Nerja.
Alhaurin el Grande
Surface Area: 72.6 square kilometres
What the natives are called: Alhaurinos
Outstanding Sights: Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación church, chapels of Santa Vera Cruz and San Sebastián, Casa Consistorial, El Cobertizo arch, Fuente Lucena (Lucena Fountain), Roman ruins of Fuente del Sol, Arabic ruins of the Fahala, ruins of the Ubrique watch tower, La Paca mill
Geographical Location: in the region of the River Guadalhorce valley, adjoining the Western Costa del Sol and Málaga regions. The centre of the village sits 239 metres above sea level and is 27 kilometres from the provincial capital. The average annual rainfall is 636 litres per square metre and the annual average temperature is 17 º C.
The first view the approaching traveller has of this village is of a succession of market gardens, as fertile as they are well tended, that descend in terraced steps into the valley where they mingle with extensive citrus plantations (oranges and lemons), olive groves, orchards and wheat fields that form a leafy and unbroken green carpet through which meanders the River Fahala.
The urban part of the municipality, which sits on the north slope of the Mijas mountain range, has the uneven surface to be expected in an area of such steep terrain. Thus, some of its streets have picturesque crooks and turns to make climbing them a bit easier.
It is known that this part of the province of Málaga has been inhabited by man at least since the Neolithic age -proven by some stone axes found at Huertas Altas- and that in succession the Iberians, Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans passed through here. It was the Romans who left the most significant traces.
The arches that remain from an aqueduct near Fuente Lucena, or Fuente de los Doce Caños, as it is also known, on the road to Coín are from the Roman era, as are several water tanks. An alabaster statue and several coins of Dioclecianus have been found in this same place, while Tuscan column capitals have been discovered at the El Tesoro farming area.
It was under Arabic domination, though, that the village took shape on its modern location and achieved greater economic power based on well-planned use of the water for irrigation. As is the case with so many other villages in Andalusia the name of this one, Alhaurín, also comes from the Arabic. Some scholars translate its root, Al-haur, as "valley". During the Muslim period a fortress was built at this place on the spot where the Encarnación church now stands, and there were several others scattered about its municipal territory. The El Cobertizo Arch was also built during this period.
After the conquest by Christian troops in 1487 –which was quite bloody, according to some reports-the customary division of the lands was carried out among the new Christian settlers. Their descendants, not wanting to be dependent on anyone else, purchased its jurisdiction in 1634. The coat of arms of the villa (royal burgh) includes the Toisón de Oro (Order of the Golden Fleece), granted by Charles V.
