History
The city's name, like so many others in the Axarquia region, is of Arabic origin, though it has also been known as Macharalhayate and, later, Almachar de la Cruz.

During the Moslem occupation, Almachar, El Borge, Cutar and Moclinejo formed what were known as "The Four Villages", which enjoyed the protection of the Comares Fortress.

In the 19th-century and at the beginning of the 20th, Almachar was famous for its cloth, hand-made in a number of textile mills. Today, most of the village's inhabitants work on the land, particularly in the cultivation of muscatel grapes and raisins.
