 Historic Interest
Albanchez Almeria Spain


In the middle of o要e of the most impressive natural spaces of this province, o要 the northside of the Filabres mountain range, where the valleys are of a rich green colour which contributes its beauty and attraction.Albanchez shows its white profile crowned by natural roof tiles rising toward the hill.

A great part of the municipality of Albanchez is within the Natural Park of Sierra Magina., some 3000 hectares of beautiful countryside.

Albanchez is within an area greatly influenced by marble.Its industry is the most important economic activity of the residents of the municipality alongside the agriculture, the fruit and olive trees, vines and almonds are the main productions in the area o要 its small plots of land.

The agrarian industry receives official supports and funding that favour the development of an agriculture of a very high quality in with a growing demand, therefore, profitable.

Town of Arabian origin, the first data corresponds to the Christian epoch, after the Reconquest, with a church, that of the Incarnation, built at the beginnings of the 18th Century.  The earliest information o要 Albanchez dates back to 1436, when the Murcian troops attacked the area, dominating other towns like, Albox, Arboleas, Zurgena, Huercal Overa and Cuevas del Almanzora.

Once the christian conquering was over, the Catholic Kings included Albanchez along with, Benitagla, Albox y Arboleas and granted them to Don Pedro Manrique de Lara, Duke of Najera.  Three years later, the Duke sold the towns to Don Juan Chacon, who after his death, passed to his widow, Ines Manrique.

It was finally Don Pedro Fajaro, first Lord of the Velez who acquired the towns, along with Oria in 1503.  It wasnt until 1572 when the expulsion of the Moors took place that the repopulation of the town was started by 14 families.

At present, it is a growing town, noticable with the construction of villas o要 the outskirts and townhouses for an increasing amount of foreign families making Albanchez their home.
