Information Alhaurín el Grande

Alhaurín el Grande is a traditional but lively village town in the Guadalhorce Valley found on the northern slope of Sierra de Mijas.

The town has a thriving expat population and on the famous ‘Gerald Brenan’ street, you will find many local- and international restaurants and bars.
