Churriana, Malaga Towns
Churriana is a small town located in the River Guadalhorce valley between Alhaurín de la Torre and Málaga city, and only a few kilometres from the airport.
The economy of the entire area used to based pretty well on agriculture, and the village is surrounded by
citrus, subtropical fruit and olive groves. But residential tourism has become increasingly important and a growing number of foreigners are acquiring properties in the area.
There has consequently been a fair bit of modern development, with smart new urbanisations and new villas.
One of most interesing local sites is the 18th century Arcos de Zapata aquaduct opposite the turn off to Churriana, which was constructed to carry water from the Fuente del Rey spring in Churriana to Málaga city, but in fact never served its intended purpose due to pressures from local landowners.
Also of interest is the early 19th century La Cónsula mansion, which is set in beautiful grounds which are open to the public. The mansion has been the Málaga Catering School since 1993.
Within the town the main site is the San Antonio Abad church.
