This region, situated in the north of the province, borders the countryside of Seville in the North; the valley of Guadalhorce in the south; the mountain ranges of Ronda and Cardiz in the east; and the floodplain of Antequera in the south. It represents the beginning of the so-called Surco Intrabetico, an enormous natural corridor, which links Andalusia with Spanish Levante (east coast of the peninsula).
The most important terrains are located in the south, shaping an area of great environmental interest. From east to west, Valle de Abdalajîs Mountains, Pizarra Mountains, Aguas Mountains, Baños Mountains, Alcaparaîn Mountains and Ortegîcar Mountains.
This mountain range has determined both the climate conditions and the communication between the region and the south part of the province, which takes advantage of natural mountain passes, making it very difficult to find alternative access ways.
This region has a continental climate, with harsh winters and very hot summers. The annual average temperature is 15 to 16 degrees and the average rainfall is 600 to 700 mm. Guadalhorce River brings the main part of the water that comes into the region through its tributary rivers, Guadalteba and Turón.
Due to the diversity of its landscape and its environmental conditions, visitors can observe spectacular natural spots, such as ecosystem of the lagoons of Campillos, the park of Ardales and the reservoirs of Guadalhorce-Guadalteba, which are doubtlessly one of the most relevant natural spots. Here is as well the Caminito del Rey in the canyon Los Gaitanes, which is perhaps the natural resource of major interest of the province of Malaga.
All of this together with the beauty of its villages, gastronomy and craftsmanship, shape the perfect surrounding for those who search cultural, ecological and active tourism.
