Guidebook for Alhaurín el Grande

Food Scene
This restaurant is one of our favourites. Close to the Finca. Family owned and operated. Authentic Andalusian food. They have a diverse main menu, but also a three course menu for a very good price. It's mostly patronised by locals, however, they speak English as well. In the summer, there is a Baracoa outside.

This restaurant was an accidental find off the main streets in Fuengirola. The owner, Antonio, and his family, offer a small, cozy, and very friendly restaurant with great food. This restaurant is furnished from La Cancela, and that's the same carpenter that made the furniture for the Finca. Please note they are often booked 2 weeks in advance.

Getting Around
Our car rental of choice is Del Paso. They have very competitive rates, speak English and Spanish. If you pick up your vehicle after 23:00, a fee may be added to your rental. We also suggest adding the complete insurance package. We have observed that when you are returning to the airport, if you do not have complete insurance, the rental companies will be very thorough on reviewing any damage, and this can delay your arrival to the airport via shuttle. Also, Del Paso is next to a BP, which has reasonable fuel prices for refueling before dropping off.

El Corte Ingles is like a shopping mall. Very good prices, and everything from home improvement, clothes and home furnishings, electronics, and groceries, et al. It's one stop shopping and very good prices. They accept all major credit cards. The Fuengirola location is large and has free parking. The downtown Malaga location is largest, however, parking is expensive. Very good customer service is paramount to them.

A stunning facade in a great setting, stepped in history. A must visit on the tourist trail of Alhaurín el Grande. This church was a site of Muslim worship prior to 1485. Another chapel was built in the 16th C. (Destroyed by Napoleon's troops in 1812 when they also destroyed the convent next door - now the site of the Town hall). The current edifice was built in 1921 - so not a super old building. Look particularly up and see the glistening green spires atop the building (vs. the purple spires at San Sebastian).
