occupies a slightly raised position on the edge of the western
area of the Guadalhorce Valley, joining the Serranía
de Ronda at the north of the municipality.
As a result, the area has a varied landscape with the beautiful
slopes of the Sierra Prieta and La Ventanilla, which can
be reached through the pine forest of the Cuesta de Pino
Alto. This is a journey of particular tourist interest, offering
spectacular views over the Guadalhorce Valley.
The origins of human settlement in the area go back a very
long time indeed: fossils found in the municipality of Alozaina
show that people lived here many thousands of years ago,
and that there was once a lake or sea here called Los Gavilanes.
Fossil remains have also been found in the Jorox area, in
the Cave of Algarrobo, where hunting utensils from the Upper
Paleolithic era and two gold trumpets from the Bronze Age
were discovered and are now in the Archaeological Museum
in Malaga. There were decorated cups and other objects found
in Iberian, and perhaps Phoenician, burial grounds, and the
Romans left their mark here too in the Albar area of the
Monte, with a column and a type of altar stone found there.
Roman remains have also been discovered in the Ardite area.
With the arrival of the Moors the fortifications at Ardite
and Aloçaina were built, and this led to the
establishment of a fortified settlement that in turn led
to the name of the town. It was visited by the troops of
Ferdinand and Isabella in 1484, when the re-population of
the area by Christians began. After the Morisco rebellion
in 1568, the town was sacked and destroyed. Alozaina was
declared a municipality on April 12th, 1492.
