Natural Park Montes de Málaga
Montes de Málaga Natural Park is located quite near the capital of the Costa del Sol and can be said to serve as a "green lung" for the city. This park - found in the central-western zone of the Baetic Range - encompasses a mid-mountain landscape of gentle topography, criss crossed by small valleys populated with extensive pine forests.
The park's 4,996 hectares are situated to the north of the city of Málaga and take in the majority of the left side of the Guadalmedina River basin. 96% of its total area is located within the municipal district of Málaga while the other 4% is divided between the districts of Casabermeja and Colmenar.
