Las Alpujarras Towns & Villages


With an Arab origin, the town had special splendour during the Arab-Andalusi cultural centuries thanks to the exploitation of its farming resources. After the Christian reconquest and the expelling of the Moriscos, the area became partially depopulated. Then it belonged to Count Cifuentes' estate until it became independent from Albuñol in 1653.

Halfway through the 19th century, the population of Albondon grew and reached 3,500 inhabitants thanks to the wine and sultana production, which were exported abroad from the ports of La Mamola and La Rabita.

Like the other coastal Granada towns and villages, Albondon has today a thriving economy thanks to the tropical-farming development and tourism.
