Sayalonga is a typical whitewashed village 41 kilometres east of Malaga and just 9 kilometers from the coast. It lies within the Axarquia, on the scenic Route of Sun and Wine at an altitude of 355 metres and has a population of 1,200. The village has winding streets, bus services, shops, a doctor's surgery, chemist, bank, bars, restaurant, post office and primary school.

Sayalonga has maintained an old world peacefulness and charm where farmers ride their mules and bullocks plough the fields. Yet it is only ten minutes drive to the beaches, fifteen minutes to the nearest marina and golf course and forty-five minutes to Malaga airport.

However, the civilisation which undoubtedly had the most significant impact on Sayalonga was that of the Arabs. The legacy of more than 900 years existence can be seen in the village and many of its buildings.


The area surrounding the village is irrigated by the River Algarrobo aiding the principle products here which are terrace grown vines and olives, citrus fruits, almond trees and nisperos.  

In Sayalonga a narrow street called "Callejón de la Alcuza " can be found. This street is only 56cm wide at its narrowest point! You can find it close to the church.
