Almogia is a charming 11th century Moorish pueblo with the remains of an ancient tower still standing. The village offers bars and restaurants. There is a Spar supermarket, chemist, butcher, fishmonger, bakery etc., as well as a market every Tuesday which is ideal for fresh produce. There are two ATMs, a 24-hour medical clinic and police station.
The historical cities of Granada, Cordoba and Ronda are fascinating and each make an easy day trip from Almogia. Always popular are the magnificent pre-historic caves of Nerja, one hour away, which are beautifully cool in the heat of the summer. For children there is the exciting Lobo Wolf Park near Antequera (especially if you can visit on a thrilling Wolf Howl Night) as well as the Bioparc Zoo in Fuengirola, Sea Life and Tivoli World in Benalmadena.
Take a 20 minute drive inland and discover the fascinating landscape of El Torcal; with its graded walks, viewing platform and observatory it is well worth a visit.
