ABOUT ALHAURÍN EL GRANDE
Alhaurín el Grande is a beautiful, vibrant town and one of the largest villages in the Valle del Guadahorce, set in a privileged location with fabulous road connections to both the Costa del Sol and Málaga. It is the thirteenth largest city in the entire province of Málaga in population, second only to coastal municipalities, the cities of Ronda and Antequera and nearby Alhaurin de la Torre. It has a population around 25,000, but there is a large presence of foreigners settled in the town, estimated to represent nearly 15% of the total population.
The origin of the name was given by the Arabs, who called it "Alhaurin", where the Catholic Monarchs added "el Grande" to distinguish it from the neighbouring town of Alhaurín de la Torre after the conquest of both sites in 1485.
Alhaurin el Grande is located on the north side of the Sierra de Mijas at an altitude of 326 metres above sea level, with a benign climate of mild winters and hot summers and more than a third of the days per year have sunshine. It is 29 km from Málaga and 18 km from Marbella.
