Hiking, biking, horse riding or just a walk through the mountains and forest, with views over the Guadalhorce valley and even the ocean, are the perfect way to relax and enjoy the piece and quietness of the beautiful surroundings.
Walking through the narrow whitewashed streets, you will discover the Moorish soul, combined with Christian elements and Roman remains.
