The town of Alcudia is located at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, on the north side, at 1011 m altitude in the Hoya de Guadix. At his feet lies a populated fertile plain of poplar, fruit and vegetables. The history of the town goes back to a primitive settlement that was sat in the Zalabí, at least in the Argárica time. Among Muslims it was known as Alcudia Alhambra (Alcudia Roja) because of the reddish color of the slopes on which it rested.
