Alhaurin El Grande to Coin

From Alhaurin El Grande follow the signs to Coin. This stretch winds through lush agricultural terrain with densely populated groves of orange and lemon trees stretching off into the distance.

In fact, in bygone years, the area was called the 'town of 300 orchards'. Nobody's counting these days but the trees still seem to be here.

 

 

The fortress town of Coin has a population of some 20,000 and, according to locals, Christopher Columbus was among the royal followers when the Catholic monarchs laid siege to the town in the mid-fifteenth century. No chance of bypassing the town even if you choose to, the road weaves through the bustling centre, past the colourful local fruit and veg market.

Coin is difficult to navigate but follow the signs from Monda and Marbella and not Ronda for our Coin to Monda route.
