AN HISTORIC RURAL COMMUNITY
Alozaina is a town of 2200 inhabitants between Coín and Ronda,
before the rise towards Casarabonela and Yunquera.
When the Muslims arrived in the area, they built the watchtowers of Ardite and Alozaina. In addition they created an aqueduct from the area of Albar - along the old road to Casarabonela - using a clay ditch and ceramic tiles.
In 1498 Alozaina was repopulated with Christians between 1485 and 1490 through the granting of a Royal Charter. The tower of Alozaina and a large part of its lands were granted to Garci Fernández Manrique and his descendants - the Counts of Frigiliana and the Dukes of Montellano.
Things to see include: Parque Mirador, Torreón de María Sagredo, Arcos de Alozaina, Iglesia Parroquial de Santa Ana, Hornacina Santa Cruz, Nécropolis Ermita Mozár del Horno de los Peñonas, Fuente El Albar, Parques y Jardines, Casco Antiguo, Jorox.
Alozaina is a very well kept, traditional Spanish white village that not only has everything you need for a relaxing, enjoyable holiday but is also conveniently situated less than an hour from both the coast and Malaga airport.
