Archidona holidays take you to the Province of Malaga which is part of Granada, to an old Andalucian town located in the foothills of Sierra de Gracia. It lies thirty miles from Malaga itself. Framed by mountains and surrounded by verdant meadows and olive groves, it is an idyllic spot where life is lived in the slow lane. If you are looking for a relaxing break in Malaga away from the coastal crowds, a low cost Archidona holiday would certainly fit the bill.
Archidona was originally a walled settlement with a Moorish fortress but the town as it stands now has its origins in the sixteenth centuary. It is an attractive town, its narrow streets filled with examples of baroque architecture and one particularly imposing square. The plaza Ochavada was constructed between 1786 and 1789 in Spanish baroque style with Mudejar brickwork, and is octagonal in shape with three entrances via arches. Sit a while at one of the many cafes and enjoy the beauty of the square as you watch the locals go about their daily lives. Another fine square is Plaza Victoria. Do visit the churches of Santa Ana and La Victoria as well as the convent of the Minimes dating from 1551. Archidona is a good base from which to visit the fantastic cities of Granada, Seville and Cordoba, so car hire would be an advantage. Only thirty miles from the coast, if you fancy a day on the beach, you have a good choice of sandy beaches in the area. Archidona offers good accommodation and service and has restaurants and bars catering for all tastes. As you may suspect, nightlife here is extremely low key, where evenings are spent wining and dining, and strolling through the streets of this pleasant town.
