Comares, Balcony of la Axarquia
No doubt that visiting Comares is a must if you are staying in la Axarquia or nearby. Comares has been recently selected as Pueblo Mágico en España (Magic Village in Spain), perhaps because it is located on the top of a mountain. Also known as “El Balcón de la Axarquía” (the Balcony of la Axarquia) because of its breathtaking views, it is the best spot to appreciate all the Costa del Sol and also Montes de Malaga Natural Park. Come with us to discover the interesting history of this special village. Comares is a typical white Andalusian village with Arabic origins. It has been an important village over the years because of its strategic position, not only in Muslim period but also in the Christian one. We will pick you up and will take you to this beautiful village, with a views over the Axarquia area that will take your breath away. Once there, we will start the guided walk and will visit its most important and beautiful corners. Then we will meet Antonio, a local man, and its lovely donkeys. These noble animals have been used traditionally to help in agriculture and transportation and nowadays they are in danger of extinction. Antonio owns 8 donkeys and we will take a walk with some of them. This way you will have the chance to discover why they are so incredibly kind and sweet and you will be helping Antonio to maintain its donkeys. Lastly you will have the chance to enjoy a traditional meal in a local restaurant. You will also be able to enjoy a coffee while gazing at the impressive landscape from its balcony. This is the perfect tour to get impressed by magnificent views and the beauty of the streets of this village.
