Twenty kilometres from the city of Malaga and 10 kilometres from the beaches at Torremolinos, Alhaurín de la Torre is a perfect destination for a relaxing visit to the Valle del Guadalhorce and its surrounds, enjoying good food and perhaps even a round of golf. Its proximity to larger towns and extensive green spaces have encouraged many malagueños to take up residence in Alhaurín de la Torre. This town has been superb at integrating newer residents while still maintaining its traditions and identity. There are more than 1,000 British people residing in Alhaurín de la Torre.

As a point of trivia, Alhaurín de la Torre"s sister city is New Iberia in the US.




Alhaurín de la Torre invites you to take a historical journey around the province, starting with the archaeological sites from the Roman era, where pottery and remains of walls and luxury dwellings have been found. You can also learn about the area"s Muslim past at Cortijo de Mollina with its remnants of an old farmhouse and tower.

Despite rapid urban growth, you"ll find that Alhaurín de la Torre"s historic centre still conserves beautiful hidden corners and buildings that evoke times gone by. An excellent example is the Church of San Sebastián. Named after the local patron saint, this neoclassical church was rebuilt after a huge earthquake devastated the province at the end of the 19th century.

An example of a piece of architecture with a public function is Fuente del Rey, the old aqueduct. The only part that has survived to this day is the Arcos de Zapata. Built in the 18th century to transport water from the Churriana natural spring to the capital, work on this aqueduct was never completed.

Moving on to the 19th century, there is Casa Refugio de Torrijos, the house where General José María de Torrijos was held prisoner by Fernando VII"s army after he tried to rise up against the absolutist rule in 1831.
