Manilva is a municipality of Malaga, located in the Costa del Sol occidental, which combines the charm of being by the sea while surrounded by beautiful vineyards. Bordering Casares and the province of Cádiz, and boasts great beaches stationed along eight kilometres of coastline that invite you to rest and breathe peace.

For lovers of culture, history, traditions and good food, Manilva is the perfect destination to enjoy a well-deserved holiday.




One of the most important monuments of Manilva is El Castillo de la Duquesa, also known as the "Fortín de Sabinillas". This was built in 1767, in the ancient Roman town, to defend the coast from continuing pirate invasions. This fortress, next to the Neolithic village of Castillejos de Alcorrín, is listed as a Site of Cultural Interest.

Inside the Fortín de Sabinillas is the Museo Arqueológico de Manilva, which enjoys a unique collection of ceramics, ornaments, different utensils and coins dated from between the first and fifth centuries.

In the surroundings of the town we can see the Ingenio Chico, with its aqueduct, and Villa Matilde. With a Moorish air, the first forms part of one of the sugar mills (installations where sugar cane was processed) built by the Duque de Arcos in these lands. Villa Matilde is a residence that once belonged to the brother of Blas Infante, Diego Infante, whose rooms currently host various cultural exhibitions. With a little luck, maybe you can enjoy some of them during your stay.

As for the religious monuments of the town special mention must be made to the Iglesia de Santa Ana. The story goes that along with the Bishop and the Duque de Arcos, those who built this building in the middle of the eighteenth century on top of a previous sixteenth century building were neighbours.
