Álora is one of the classical white Andalusian villages that you find
a bit inland, away from the coastal tourism. It is one of the oldest urban regions in the
province of Málaga and many of the old civilisations has marked the village.
The village is spread over three heights and on top of one of them there is an old
arab fortress. However, it is used as a cemetery on the inside, but looks great from the outside.
At night it looks quite grand as it is illuminated.
The church Iglesia
Parroquial de Ntra. Sra. de la Encarnación is the third largest in the province of Málaga.
It is located by Plaza Baja - "the lower square". The newly opened museum, Museo Municipal de Álora,
is also located here.
