Comares is a Moorish village located on the border between the region of Axarquía and the Montes de Málaga. It is known as the "Balcony of the Axarquía" because of its privileged position on a mountain top.
Its labyrinth-like streets and its architecture, a reflection of its Moorish roots, are the most characteristic features of its urban landscape. The Ruta de la Pasa (Route of the Raisin) should not be missed. This village is also the birthplace of verdiales, a particular style of folk song in the villages of Malaga and which carries the name of the village.
MUST SEE SITES IN COMARES
The Comares Castle and the Aljibe de Mazmúllar form part of the rich heritage left by the Arabs in this village of Axarquía. The fortress still preserves two of its turrets and part of the ancient wall, which is known as La Tahona. The well, built during the 13th century, was declared a national Historical-Artistic Monument.
The Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación is another one of the main architectural features of Comares. This Mudejar-style church is located at the highest part of the village. It was built during the 16th century, although the Sagrario chapel was added at a later date. It has three naves and its distinctive features include its Mozarabic tower.
