There is only one way to explore Alcaucin and that's by foot but beware nothing is flat in and around Alcaucin but from Calle Enmedio , where Casa Pablo everything is within easy reach.
Parking and Driving
There are many parking options:
Down a side street near the house,
The town square (beware of fiestas as parking is not allowed during such times).
Next to the round about and playground
Up by the school
The best piece of advice if you're not use to driving on narrow streets is to take out the extra insurance! and take corners wide!
As you come up the road from Puente Don Manuel and are aware of reaching Alcaucin you will see Venta La Parra on your left run by Antonio (one of the clearest Spanish speakers in the village) and his family, then as you round the corner which has a playground and swimming pool within it, you will see El Rancho Grande on your left run by Carlos and his trusty waiter Cristian (great for sunset). As you continue up to the square on the left is a butcher (open Tues, thurs and Saturday) opposite the hotel there's Enriques Bar, the flowing fresh spring Fountain, Unicaja bank (with cash machine), down a few stairs from here you'll find the post office (open 9am - 11am), a butcher and shop. The next stop is Bar Silva run by Rapha and a good place to witness some high calibre dominoes, opposite in Cajama bank. Then if you keep right you will past the Coveran mini market and at the bottom on the "round about" is the tobacconist and The Meson bar run by Manolo and his familly. On Saturdays you'll find all local produce for sale in the market.
If you go back on yourself past the mini-market and turn right just before Bar Silva you'll head upto to the Ayuntimiento, church and Pharmacy. This square is where all main village events happen. And directly above this is Calle Enmedio!
There's plenty more to be found from mid night bakeries, school, play ground and sneaky allies. For more information visit www.alcaucin.es and for Alcaucin and further afield check: Check: http://www.absoluteaxarquia.com/
