The Axarquía is one of the Malaga pioneer regions in the promotion of rural tourism and of the historical, geographical and social peculiarities that are inherent in it.
In just 1000km² we find 31 unique villages with places to be discovered, and a variety of landscapes from the blue of the Mediterranean coast to the green of the high woods, from the agricultural landscapes to the beauty of its villages.
And all this spiced by warm people and all imaginable tourist and popular services, and of course, the incomparable stamp of its gastronomy, festivities and traditional products.

The Axarquía holds a special attraction, which along with the fertility of its soil, has led man to inhabit it for thousands of years, leaving their mark for those who visit to see the caves and the remains of cities, streets and monuments.
The Axarquía is a land of contrasts, where one can touch the sky from the top of La Maroma (2,086 metres high) which is reached through lush woods and rivers of crystal clear water with waterfalls and different levels; but wide beaches can also be enjoyed at the warm Mediterranean.
In between these, fertile fields, hills covered with grapevines and flatlands covered with olive trees for over two thousand years.
Added to these charms is the whiteness of its villages, with narrow and steep streets, festivities and monuments, and ending with an exquisite gastronomy and unique products such as oil, wine, raisins and sweets.
