Alfacar is an historic town approximately 8 kilometres from the city of Granada, in the autonomous Spanish region of Andalucia. In the 2005 census, INE reported its population as 5107 inhabitants. The town is on the edge of the Sierra de Huétor Natural Park and is in a region of intensive olive production. The town is 920 metres above sea level, but the local fossil record contains marine molluscs that show the profound geological forces that have shaped the region.
