Is a town within the municipality of Zurgena. The town is made up of around a thousand inhabitants, situated on the left bank of the Almanzora River.
The beginnings of the urban area of Alfoquia was limited, in its origins, to diverse farmhouses disseminated along the “Pago de Alfoquia”, from where took its name. When the Lorca-Baza railroad was inaugurated in 1894, some buildings were needed for storage of the products that arrived or left on the railroad. This meant that the workers and their families needed housing and so the population actually grew from workers from many different places. The growth occurred slowly but surely over 60 years giving it a cosmopolitan population from the start.
Without doubt, La Alfoquia owes its true origin to the railroad, in fact during almost all of the 20th Century; the town was known as The Station and was only given the name of Alfoquia in the official media of the Town Hall of Zurgena. The so named “House or Store of the Aunt Magdalene” was one of the symbolic buildings of La Alfoquia until May 30th, 1997 when the machines, due to their poor state, put an end to it. The house has been used for all kinds of activities: dwelling, goods depot for wheat, Christmas celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, etc.
In La Alfoquia there have been two-grain mills, one used to obtain food for people and the other for their animals. One water driven by the stream of Tamarchete, the other, electrically operated, situated in the centre of the town. Today they are disused although the second one may be seen working during various events.
Albox is nestled between the Sierra de las Estancias and the Sierra de los Filabres mountain ranges, a short distance from the Almanzora river. It is a typical whitewashed town with narrow streets interspersed with small plazas. As a small agricultural town it is surrounded by olive groves and lemon and orange orchards.
The origin of Albox is medieval and the remains of an ancient fort can be found on a nearby hill. In 1503 an earthquake destroyed it and many of its historical buildings were lost. It has been completely reconstructed in its present location.
Albox and the surrounding area offer a number of outdoor pursuits for the visitor. There area multitude of country areas to walk and explore, horse riding, cycling or off-roading in a 4WD. The area is also home to Europe’s biggest observatory.
Many of the local traditions in Albox remain, including ceramics. Two celebrated ceramicist families. Herminio and the Ends, remain in Albox. Their pottery factories still cook the mud in the old Arab furnaces and produce popular decorative ceramics, mostly earthenware.
There is a flourishing weekly market held on Tuesdays selling fresh fruit and vegetables, clothes and household items and a smaller market on a Saturday morning.. The market spans through the streets into the Rambla (a dry riverbed) and here you can buy everything from clothes to livestock. Albox town has all the usual amenities – banks; supermarkets, pharmacies, doctors, 24hr emergency centre, hairdressers, beauty salons, plus a wide range of bars/restaurants – including Spanish, English, Indian, Chinese.
