Casarabonela is located at the foothills of Sierra Prieta, part of the Sierra de las Nieves. The air is clean and the views are stunning, due to the elevated position of the village. It is an ideal base for outdoor- and nature lovers. Hiking, biking, horse riding or just a walk through the mountains and forest, with views over the Guadalhorce valley and even the ocean, are the perfect way to relax and enjoy the piece and quietness of the beautiful surroundings.
Walking through the narrow whitewashed streets, you will discover the Moorish soul, combined with Christian elements and Roman remains. The village has a central church and many plazas and outside terraces where you can enjoy sunshine, local tapas and a drink. Also at night you can join the locals for a drink in one of the bars. They have the usual Andalusian customs and events; the annual feria, procession and a unique Easter celebration. Olives play a big part of their economy, which comes as no surprise when you see the olive groves surrounding the village.
At the highest part of town, the remains of the Arab Castle Casarabonela are visible, besides its historical value it is an exceptional viewpoint! The botanic garden (Jardin Andalusi) of Casarabonela is well known for its collection of cactus plants, there are 2.500 species from all over the world.
Surrounded by mountains, there is one road into the village and one road out. Casarabonela is a bit further off the beaten track, but still located only 40 minutes (47 km.) from Málaga and the airport. The beaches of the Costa del Sol are a 45 minutes (62 km.) drive.
- Area Info: Alozaina Guide
History is omnipresent in Alozaina. From the recent… in 1976 Alozaina was voted Spain's “prettiest village”. To the ancient… the Phoenicians traded heavily in and near the village. Perched high above Guadalhorce Valley, Alozaina is a classic Andalucian white-washed pueblo.
It came to prominence in the 14th century, with many of its main monuments and buildings, including the castle and the haunting Church of Santa Ana (which used to be a mosque), dating to that era – and Moorish ruins dotted throughout the town centre.
Beyond the village's confines is some of southern Spain's most dramatic scenery, taking in the Río Grande valley to the south and the beginning of the bucolic Sierra Prieta mountain range to the north.
This landscape is characterised by verdant forests and rocky outcrops, with the prehistoric Tajo de Jorox caves a short drive away. Back in the village, the sedate pace of life is strangely compelling, and a weekend spent here is sure to reduce even the highest blood pressure.
With history, religion and ruins playing such a major part in the village's existence, and only 2,000 inhabitants, Alozaina has maintained its genteel appeal over the years so it’s not the place you head to – or buy a property in – for a pulsating nightlife. Traditional, tranquil and slightly isolated, Alozaina offers a taste of authentic Spanish rural life – at a decidedly (but eminently appealing, to some) slow pace.
