There is a famous region in the province of Malaga with the name of Axacquia. Almachar is situated in that region. It is a village having the reputation of being a white village of Spain. It is a small village having a small population of around 2000 people living in it. The height of village is 230 meters from the sea level. The exact location of the village is at a distance of twenty six kilometers from Malaga.

Almachar is a village that was established by the Arabs. Most of the village was constructed in the sixteenth century. There is a famous church in this village by the name of San Mateo Church that belongs to the sixteenth century. There is a famous Raisin Museum in this village that is worth exploring. It is a unique museum having two floors and it shows the economic development of the village in recent times. This museum is located inside the village near the tourist office from where lots of information can be obtained before visiting it.

The village of Almachar is very well built in this era. It is neat and clean having sign boards that lead people to their desired locations. There are many festivals celebrated in this village whole year round. The most famous festival of Almachar is Fiesta de Ajoblanco. It is celebrated in the month of September every year. In this festival people enjoy a local drink that is made from garlic, olives, vinegar, salt and almonds.

There is a grape monument in the village of Almachar near the car park. That is probably the best place for starting the exploration of village. The best way is to park the car in the car park and explore the village by foot because it is hard to find any space for car parking inside the village.

There is a large square near the entrance of village. There is a resting place available in this square and there is a bar located in the same vicinity. The bar has excellent views from its terrace which makes it very much enjoyable for the visitors. The beauty of Almachar is that there are nice restaurants, bars and shops in the village. The souvenir shops in the village are excellent in this respect. There is also a famous butcher shop located in this village. Almachar is an excellent place to spend a holiday in Spain.
