Almachar

Almachar

Typical Moorish village

Almáchar is situated between El Borge and the Almáchar river, in the heart of the Axarquía hills.

The narrow, typically Moorish streets are impossible for the modern day car so it is best to explore the village on foot.

Surrounding this traditional pueblo is a picturesque landscape, dotted with small farmhouses, market gardens and orchards. Many of the farmhouses have the traditional drying beds for raisins, a product for which Almáchar is famous.
