The municipality of Albánchez (726 inhabitants in 2008; 3,510 ha; municipal website) is located on the northern slopes of the Sierra de Los Filabres, 80 km south of Almería.
Situated in the middle of an impressive natural space. Albanchez is within the Natural Park of Sierra Magina, 3,000 hectares of beautiful countryside. Albanchez is a typical Moorish village with white houses and narrow streets. Its main industry is marble, alongside agriculture, fruit and olive trees, vines and almonds are the main production grown on small plots of land.
Albánchez was reconquered by the Christian Kings in 1488; transfered to Pedro Manrique Lara, the village was incorporated in the 16th century to the Marquisate of Los VŽlez. In 1518, the village was rebuilt by Moriscos; after their expelling from Spain, the village was resettled by Catholic families from 1572 onwards.
Citrus growing increased the wealth of the village, whose population peaked at 3,425 in 1882. Since then, population has dramatically decreased due to immigration to other parts of Spain and South America, not compensated yet by foreign immigration, especially from Britain.
The aqueduct locally known as “Los Arcos” (The Arches) was built in the late Roman Empire and subsequently used by the Morisco and Christian settlers of Albánchez; abandoned long ago, the monument has however been completely preserved and restored several times. Made of five arches, the bridge is 45 m in length and 16.4 m in height.
