Gay Alora


Alora. Spain.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

The small town of Alora is situated 25 miles north of Málaga. From a distance, it is a typical pueblo blanco; a whitewashed village nestled between three rocky spurs topped by the ruins of a magnificent castle which dates from pre-roman times and contains fine examples of Moorish architecture.

Alora’s gay and lesbian accommodation is very limited but most gay and lesbian travelers stay in Malaga where there is a good range of hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfast accommodation to choose from. After your stay, post a review of Pink Choice for the benefit of other gay and lesbian travelers.

The village consists of a series of very steep slopes and cobbled white-washed streets lined with lemon trees. All streets seem to converge on the town square, overlooked by an impressive seventeenth century Church of La Encarnacion built on the site of a former mosque.

Monday is market day when the village becomes a lively mass of stallholders and shoppers. Alora's economy is based on agriculture, in particular the cultivation of tropical fruits, olives and grape vines.
The local cuisine uses the traditional Mediterranean ingredients of olives, almonds and citrus fruits. Some of the local dishes are particularly delicious, including sopa porota, based on a garlic broth with croutons and a revuelta of scrambled eggs with spring onions and vegetables.

Perhaps most important, Alora is said to be the birthplace of Malagueño flamenco. Alora's main fiesta is the flamenco festival which is held annually in June. Another popular traditional event is the Romería de la Virgen de las Flores which takes place in the middle of September and is one of the best places to enjoy, first-hand, the traditional verdiales.

So, whether you’re looking for relaxation with a little history and culture thown in, Alora and nearby Malaga, Spain is a perfect destination for the gay and lesbian traveler.
