Found in the Almanzora Valley, Arboleas is a small town on the bank of the Almanzora River, in the spurs of the Filabres mountain range. The old part of the town has cobbled streets and an ancient church, constructed in 1492 by the Cardinal Archbishop of Toledo. This area has been inhabited since prehistoric days and has a long and interesting history, details of which can be found in the impressive new Town Hall in the higher part of the town.
The Moors played a large part in this history and an Arab writer name Abu Ben Abdalacis Al Arboli was born here in the 14thCentury, he wrote a book about the food of the region, whose original copy is kept in the National Library.; In 1488 Arboleas, together with many villages of the area, surrendered to Christian rule under the Catholic Kings, after the troops from Lorca, together with those of the daughters of the Marques of Velez, won their battle against the Moors.
It has a strong agricultural economy, growing citrus, olive trees, almond trees and cereals such as wheat and barley.
Situated just a 25 minute drive from the coast is the pretty villages of Arboleas, Zurgena and its neighbouring village of La Alfoquia.
The villages have a population in excess of 2500 – mostly friendly Spaniards working in local agriculture. The nearby amenities include a doctor’s surgery and an English speaking pharmacy, primary school, older children can attend the secondary school in La Alfoquia, and a free school bus is available. There is also a market every Saturday morning selling all local produce.
Nowadays, with easy access provided by the dual carriageway between and Baza, many British people have made this small town their home, and in Arroyo Aceituno, at the entrance to a beautiful valley that runs along the base of the Filabres mountains, there is an expanding residential area of neat villas with pretty gardens and pools, where many live.
The British join in the local fiestas, the times and dates of which are advertised in the local papers.
