Once again we were delighted to take a trip with Dave, this time exploring the Lakes and Mountains inland from the coast. Dave makes everything so interesting and can answer any question easily, even fairly random ones. As well as showing us a different side to Spain, covering Spanish history, politics, nature and culture, which deepens our understanding and appreciation of Andalucia, Dave also always choses the best places to take breaks. This day was one of the highlights of our 10 day stay and we hope we will be able to have another trip in the future. Thanks Dave

San Sebastian Church

Reviewed By JnVSydney - Sydney

During our stay in Alhaurin, we did many walks within the white village. One of our must see's was this chapel. The tourist centre is located across the street where we got a a tourist guide with all the must see's and do's. The chapel facade is quite striking however, it is inside that amazed us, there is a effigy of jesus carrying the cross that is very beautiful, so worth a look.

Alhaurin Golf

Reviewed By Jean Claude L - Marbella, Spain

I've played a lot of different courses designed by Severiano Ballesteros and I must admit they all have things in common. Seve has been a genius designing golf courses where no other would dare to. Alhaurin el Grande golf course is a perfect example: it's unbelievable to see how it's hanging on the side of the mountain surrounded by a beautiful landscape and stunning views to the sea and the mountains… plus the Castillo de la Mota always present in the back ground.
I would rate the overall conditions of the course (I played mid September 2017) as pretty good. Greens and fairways were in good condition. I also recommend the use of a buggy, unless you're a healthy trekker. Mostly for the first 9. Be aware you'll need to play a lot of shot with no visibility, thus be ready to loose some balls if you're not perfectly straight.
Anyway, this club offers a very good price for 18 holes with buggy and the place deserves your visit.

Santa Vera Cruz Chapel

Reviewed By JnVSydney - Sydney

Santa Vera Cruz Chapel (in Spanish: Ermita de la Santa Cruz) is the home and HQ of "The Greens". There are two religious brotherhoods in Alhaurin-el-Grande - The Greens and The Purples. (The Purples are HQ'd at San Sebastian). Sounds a bit daft to foreigners but these brotherhoods are a big part of life in town - particularly during the Easter processions when they parade in the velvet cloaks and hoods. 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). Alhaurin is a bit hilly and this is not a stand-alone attraction - make it part of a walking tour and include the Town Hall next door (which has the remains of the convent in its basement. There are also roman columns in the forecourt. Nearby is the Fountain of the 12 spouts (another relatively modern item - but on the site of a spring that was first used when the Romans where here). Coming or going from town to the Chapel you will find a particularly leafy plaza - Plaza Alta (High Square vs. Plaza Bajo - Low Square) - just a nice spot for a sit and cafes nearby. Make sure you get the Blue Paso a Paso / Step by Step guidebook (free) from the Tourist Info Centre at the Casa de la Cultura on Calle Nueve - before you start out. It's near San Sebastian and means you'll get the most out of the time you have in Alhaurin.

Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion

Reviewed By JnVSydney - Sydney

This church sits in a pretty square called Plaza Baja. By no means the busiest spot in Alhaurin, but there are a couple of pleasant tapas bars. There is parking behind the church (a parking lot) and also street parking in the vicinity. The blue spire of this church provides an ideal landmark as you walk around the town. Behind the church you will find the Arco del Cobertizo (The Arch of Protection). It's not signposted, but just head behind the church and look for the brick arch. What is amazing is that the arch is actually from the 12th century. It is from the muslim period and was the gateway to the medina and likely part of the city walls. The church itself (not always open), started life shortly after the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs in 1485, though not finished until the late 16th C. It's been altered in the centuries since. Alhaurin can be a bit confusing to start with - either in a car or on foot. Make your first stop after this church, the info centre. This is a desk and a rack of maps tucked inside the Casa de la Cultura, just a short way along Calle Nueva (which is where this church is). The lady there spoke English and was very helpful giving us maps etc and a wonderful blue guidebook published by the Council (and free) which details this church and many other monuments and parks in Alhaurin and is in Spanish and English.

Im not normally one who takes the time to write reviews ,but i do believe in credit where credit is due. I recently attended The Eagles Training camp with one of my mates to take part in a survival/bush craft workshop . The team at the Eagle camp made us feel at home as soon as we got there, they had a fantastic day planned for us including woodland hiking, identification of local fauna, Tracking and trapping, knife and axe throwing and the list could go on ! Myself and my mate really enjoyed the experience and have already booked a camp out session with the Eagles team. Looking forwards to our next adventure with the Eagles camp .......
