Alacala la Real

Alcala la Real information

This delightful large town has a population of approximately 22,000 and is located on the N432 between Cordoba (85km) and Granada (47km) although, technically, it falls within the province of Jaen. The town has a large English community and there are several English bars and a language college. The town has an impressive fortress and was a strategic stronghold during medieval times, and subsequently occupied by the Moors in 713. Thereafter, Alcala la Real was the scene of frequent battles between the Moors and the Christians. This tumultuous period lasted until 1341 when Alfonso XI gained control of the town. The crown established an abbey here which was deemed the headquarters from where to launch a major offensive on Granada.
