The Axarquía is located just south of the rugged Sierra de Tejeda y Almijara. This sun-drenched area with its many white Moorish villages and beautiful hilly landscapes is a wonderful destination for a holiday in Andalusia. The Mediterranean climate provides a wealth of fruits including citrus fruits, avocados and figs.

The atmospheric, picturesque villages in Axarquía are all of Moorish origin, which can be seen in the typical house construction and narrow streets. In villages such as Salares (200 inhabitants) and Archez you will find old minarets. The villages are located at an altitude of about 600 meters, surrounded by a beautiful hilly landscape that has largely been cultivated for the growth of citrus fruits and avocados.

Sedella is located on the edge of the natural park and offers a view of the highest mountain (Maroma, 2065m). You will regularly see mules with their owner coming off the land in the narrow streets of the villages. At the church square of Sedella (1000 inhabitants) there are a few bars where you can always have a chat and get tapas. Sedella also has a few restaurants and two grocery stores.

In the western part of the Axarquía are Riogordo (2600 inhabitants) and Colmenar (3200 inhabitants). They are beautiful villages nestled between olive and almond trees. In both villages there are several bars and restaurants and you can get all your groceries. Due to their location in the center of Andalusia, these villages are also a good starting point to visit various cities and the coast.

Directly above the villages begins the varied natural park of the Sierra Tejeda y Almijara. Many trees and shrubs grow at the foot of the mountains, nothing grows on the higher limestone massif and the combination of lush vegetation and bare, straight rock walls forms an impressive backdrop.

The mountains are the habitat of mountain goats and birds of prey and migratory birds use the area frequently. But also hikers have access. There are even trails that lead over the side flanks to the top. Those who don’t feel much for the mountains can wander from village to village through the hills, with the village pub as final destination. By car you can reach the sea in half an hour to an hour.
