Almogia

Almogia is an attractive and historic village situated within the Montes de Malaga, just 30 minutes north of Malaga city and the airport.

The name Almogia, derives from the Moorish “al-megia” meaning the pretty one. This vertical village is perched on the hillside below the Sierra del Hacho and the Santi Petri peak and offers visitors a rare glance at traditional Spanish living.

The village itself is well served by shops, bars and restaurants although access to Málaga is easy via the old road through the Guadalhorce valley. The village is starting to grown again and this means that there are now two distinct areas within the village – the old quarter where new development is virtually impossible and the flatter, more accessible area to the east of the village where there are areas programmed for controlled development in the coming years.

As with most villages in this area, there are a number of small hamlets surrounding the main village which can prove very interesting for visitors.

Agriculture remains extremely important to the economy of Almogia – olive trees are plentiful leading to the production of high quality olive oil, almond trees grow on the steep-sided slopes (particularly attractive when the blossom arrives during February) and cork oak trees abound.

The esparto grass also plays an important role in the history of Almogia – many of the village co-operatives created baskets, hats and other useful objects from this abundant source – the Spanish military even wore the esparto hats made in Almogia during the Cuban war of the 19th Century!
