This Village of 5,500 inhabitant’s lies north-west of Antequera is probably most famous for its cadaverous celebrity El Tempranillo.
The main focus of Alameda is the central Fuente de la Placeta, built from delicate local stone at the time of King Carlos III, in the Plaza de España. Until recent decades it was still the main source of fresh water for the town, and the sizeable width of the fountain's base, built perhaps deliberately, made it impossible to fill a large pitcher without leaning over and falling into the fountain. Townsfolk developed a trick of putting the pitcher on the ground and filling it using a hollow cane reed. The nearby Plaza de la Constitution is a pleasant tree-lined square with benches where townspeople take their evening paseo, walk.
