Default Alhaurin El Grande

Hi, I am looking to buy a house in Alhaurin El Grandeand would really appreciate some information on the current state of crime/gypsies/bulglaries etc; as well as what areas to stay away from. I've heard that areas such as "El Bajondillo" and "El Chorro" are very rough but I have no idea where this is, street names would really help. As well is Alhaurin El Grande just rough as a whole or is it just certain parts? Thanks

Hi, and welcome.

"El bajondillo" is where i have lived for 15 years with my parents. Well we live on the main road, not in the smaller streets. It is situated behind the guardia civil station, and behind the purple church on the square, if you can imagine that on a map.

El chorro is at the top of the hill basically as high as you can get - take the road up the hill opposite coviran and turn right, you will end up there. Look at the new park area on google maps and then directly towards the hills and you will see a group of houses in tight streets etc.

Ive seen the odd fight and flare up in the barrio, but nothing in the last few years.

I would suggest that whoever told you that alhaurin is "rough" either 1,doesnt live here or 2,never lived in a town of 40,000 people before (guessed that number, it was 28k a few years ago)
