Alora - The real Spain
Alora, Andalusia, Spain
Additional Location Information
Alora is the perfect white village. Built on three hills, it commands clear views of the Rio Guadalhorce valley, South towards Cartama and Malaga and North towards El Chorro, Antequera and El Torcal.
Alora can be reached by road (car or bus) and by train from Madrid or from Malaga.
By road from Madrid the shortest route is motorway to Granada, turning onto the A92 to Seville. It is then possible either to take the first turning left to Malaga or to continue beyond Antequera and take the turning to Campillos.
Please let me know if you need more details on how to get to the flat.
Alora is only 35 minutes from Malaga airport. There are buses and trains from the airport to Malaga bus and train station.
The train from Madrid does not stop at Alora, it is therefore necessary to go to Malaga and take a local train from there to Alora. There are also buses from Malaga to Alora about once an hour. There are no late services.
If arriving by car from Malaga take the first (new) entrance to the town. When you reach the traffic lights turn left and follow the one way system. Use the attached map to find the house (it is slightly off Calle Calvario, but it is preferable to park in the street as the access is very steep).
Public transport is excellent. Buses go to Malaga and many surrounding places such as Ronda. The railway runs to Malaga from Alora station, which is down at the bottom of the hill where the main road climbs to the village, and a minibus shuttles backwards and forwards to the village centre. From Malaga convenient connections run to the airport and Fuengirola on the coast. Trains are modern, clean, efficient and cost next to nothing.
The road system is also excellent. The A357, which connects to Malaga and Campillos in the opposite direction, is a good road already and is currently being upgraded to a dual carriageway. At or towards Campillos, connecting roads to Ronda, Granada, Cordoba and Seville are even better, so the great cities and towns of Andalucia all make an easy day trip.
