Population (2005) – Total 611
Village situated in the foothills of the Sierra de las Estancias, made up of a harmonic group of houses beside the Rambla de Arquillos, within a white clay valley and flanked by two low ridges covered in a continuous layer of stone. The landscape this constitutes is quite singular.
History of Partaloa
Through its history it appears with very different names: Carsaloba, Cartaloba, Cantalobo, Paralobra, in the Papal Bull of 1505 it appears as Partaloba, the name which it had until the end of the XVIII century. In the XIX century it appeared with its current name.After the Christian conquest it passed through different hands due to transfer or sale. The Catholic Monarchs gave Partaloa to don Diego Hurtado de Mendoza who named Muhammad Valenci as governor.
In 1501 it was sold to don Jose Álvarez de Toledo y Osorio Cordoba y Guzman, owner of the estates of Cantoria and Partaloa. In the year 1515 it was sold by the Duke of Cantoria and Partaloa to don Pedro Fajardo for two and a half million “maravedí¬es” (an old Spanish coin), of these, 150 were for the buildings and forts and the rest for the 470 vassals that there were in both villages at a price of 5,000 “maravedí¬es” each. Pedro Tortosa was named governor.
The tradition of the “farras” is worth mentioning. They are parties held by friends where they eat and drink, or “La Cencerrá” an occasion celebrated with songs, the noise of tin cans and saucepans at night when there is a marriage between two people one of whom is a widow or widower.
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 that is one of the features of Albox. The market spans through the streets into the Rambla (a dry riverbed) and here you can buy everything from clothes to livestock.
