This all suggests that it would make a good alternative to Málaga for a first and/or last night stop. This is true but you can well reach the station and realise you have to scale a longish steep hill to get to the town. However, if you are quick there is a sevice bus that meets most trains and costs under €1 to take you to the village. No service exist on Sundys but large sign on the station wall gives the number for the taxi rank in Alora and the station has a phone box.
The village itself consists of about three parallel roads at different levels with steep roads and tracks joining them. It is pleasant to make your way up to the castle. There is also a museum and the third largest church in Adulusia. There are numerous colourful fiestas through out the year and Santa Semana, (Easter) when Alora is at its most interesing. Twelve kilometers away is the stunning El-chorro gorge a place where climbers from all over the world come to take advantage of the grade one slopes. A few kilometers further on the picturesque lake district where you can find walks to suit all abilities and a liberal sprinkling of resturaunts and bars; try El Mirador for the wonderful views.
