Alhaurin el Grande
Alhaurin el Grande is a municipality in Malaga province situated to the north of the Mijas mountain range. You will find numerous cultivations of citruses, fruit trees and vegetable farms. The name of Alhaurin came from the Arabs, and after the conquest of the catholic kings, these would add el Grande to differentiate it from the other Alhaurin in Malaga, "Alhaurin de la Torre". Several cultures have passed through this place: Phoenicians, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs have settled in Alhaurin throughout history, although the human presence goes beyond, with Neolithic archaeological remains. The Greek presence provided methods to cultivate the lands of the city and prune vineyards, something that achieved an increase of the local population and the trade. The romans created different settlements inside Alhaurin el Grande, amongst them we can highlight Fuente del Sol and la Huerta del Niño (where they found a tombstone of a young roman); in these settlements, numerous archaeological remains have been found although the most important of all is the aqueduct on the Coin road. Amongst the benefits that the Arabs brought to Alhaurin el Grande, we can highlight an increase of trade, agriculture and cattle farming in the area. They created several buildings in the city, like the mosque for example, that we could see if it werent for the Christian temple built after the conquest. Well also find, amongst the most important remains, the well-known Castillo de la Reina (the queens castle), today almost completely disappeared, that was used by the Queen Isabel after the conquest. Alhaurin el Grande was an important location during the Al-Andalus period, and was also the culture that named it "Alhaur", which means "the valley people". From Malaga you can reach the city in 30-40 minutes by car (28 km).
