Front of the house Centrally located, 50 meters from Bars and Restaurants
Antigua Fonda is only 50 meters from the centre of town with it's many restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Alcalá, an Andalucian white village with official "Historic-Artistic" status awarded in 1984 (in recognition of the town's excellent eclectic examples of baroque and neoclassic architecture). Alcalá de los Gazules is on the famous 'Ruta del Toro' and is at the heart of the vast Parque Natural de los Alcornocales ('alcornocales' is Spanish for cork trees) - a birdwatcher, walker, cyclist and nature-lovers paradise.
As well as two mountains to climb (around 1000 mtrs), there are many local walks in the park. Clean air and country walks for contemplation, and also opportunities to buy local artisan products in some of the small shops in the town. The fantastic white sandy beaches of the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) are around 35 minutes drive.
Although our street is designated a "No Parking" street, you can stop to unload your baggage, and there are many street parking areas close by.
6000 people, 35 bars/restaurants (or more), hundreds of little shops, heaps of history
This Andalucia white village has remained largely unchanged over recent years and the old town centre was given official "Historic-Artistic" status in 1984. This privilege was awarded in recognition of the town's excellent eclectic examples of baroque and neoclassic architecture, as well as the typically Andaluz houses which give it an authentically local atmosphere.
Alcalá was also recognized in 1924 by the world famous Granada writer and poet, Federico García Lorca, who wrote in appreciation of his Andaluz heritage "I breath for Málaga…. for Cádiz, for Alcalá de los Gazules, for what is intimately Andaluz.".
Alcalá de los Gazules is on the famous 'Ruta del Toro' and is at the heart of the vast Parque Natural de los Alcornocales ('alcornocales' is Spanish for cork trees) - a nature-lovers paradise. As well as many miles of greenery, blissful tranquility, clean air and country walks for contemplation, there are also opportunities to buy local artisan products in some of the small shops in the town. Not only nature lovers are attracted to Alcalá, but also those interested in both big and small game hunting.
