The municipality of Casabermeja stretches from Montes de Málaga to the south of the Torcal and Cabras ranges. It is the main gateway to the Antequera region and a metal bull, so emblematic of Spain"s roads, welcomes us to the town, after a fashion.

NOT TO MISS IN CASABERMEJA
Casabermeja is especially known for the San Sebastian Municipal Cemetery. The originality of its pantheons, burial mounds and pinnacles led to it gaining National Monument status in 1980. Its whitewashed niches have three parts: a bottom for the deceased, a central part for the headstone and a decorative front part at the top. This peculiar structure made many outsiders believe that in this town the dead were buried standing. No, they are not.
Among the archaeological remains located in the municipality of Casabermeja, a highlight is the set of paintings at Peñas de Cabrera. This prehistoric site, featuring rock paintings, is listed as a Place of Cultural interest.
Inherited from Casabermeja"s Arab past is the Zambra Tower. Located four kilometers from the town, it was built in the thirteenth century to guard the land the municipality now occupies. Also worth a visit is the Casabermeja Ceramics Workshop/Museum, conceived as an exhibition space and studio.
The most notable building in the village is the parish church of Nuestra Señora del Socorro. Founded in the sixteenth century, but later reformed, it consists of three naves separated by semicircular arches. The exterior of the building is distinguished by the tower, with five sections. The temple, declared a Place of Cultural Interest, contains valuable pieces of antique jewelry.
