Villanueva de la Concepción is a village in the district of Antequera filled with whitewashed houses, winding streets and ornate village squares. Close to El Torcal Natural Area it is also one of the best starting places for visiting this whim of nature with its impossible shapes (declared a UNESCO Heritage of Mankind Site).
Villanueva de la Concepción has retained the ancient customs of the inland villages of Malaga and knows full well how to celebrate. Unique festivities that reflect the idiosyncrasy of the village, located in this special environment. A delightful village which, inevitably, has attracted many foreign, namely British, residents.
VILLANUEVA DE LA CONCEPCIÓN IS NOT TO BE MISSED
Villanueva de la Concepción has three bridges which were part of the Royal Way, linking Malaga to Madrid in times gone by. Horcajo Bridge was built in 1787 with ashlar stones from El Torcal. The other two bridges are the Paraíso Bridge and the Garrayo or Siete Ojos (Seven Eyes) Bridge.
The Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepción is the most representative building in the village. It was designed in the 19th century, has only one nave and the façade is crowned by a bell gable. A wooden carving of San Cayetano with the baby Jesus, dated between the 18th and 19th century, and a figure of the Virgen Inmaculada Concepción are the principal works of art.
The Villanueva de la Concepción also has two typical Andalusian village squares, Andalucía and García Caparrós.
