About Us

Alhama de granda

The region around Alhama de Granada and the Poniente Granadino is known as “La Ultima Frontera”

Alhama de Granada is the frontier due to its historical location as being the last bastion of Moorish Spain and boasts some of the most spectacular mountain trails and beautiful scenery to be found. The landscape offers a variety of trails on different surfaces which both inspire and challenge the adventurous trail runner and the explorer in all of us. Every crest and bend of the trail offers the potential for a new discovery. With the sport of Trail Running becoming ever more popular runners of all abilities and experience are seeking out new locations to practice and enjoy their passion for running in the great outdoors.

Its dramatic situation above the gorge and its turbulent geological and social history have left it’s mark over the centuries and here you will find a community who look upon their town with pride and who offer the warmest of welcomes to anyone who comes here. Alhama de Granada is the perfect location to base your training camp and the area could almost have been created for the life outdoors. After you’ve enjoyed the scenic trails, spent the day cycling through the mountains or swam in the inviting waters of our lakes you can enjoy the hospitality of a town that loves to say “Bienvenido a Alhama”.

We are within an hour’s drive of the historic cities of Malaga and Granada and only 45 minutes from the coast and the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean.
