Serrato is a little, hidden-away "malagueño" village in the Ronda highlands, located in the region of Guadalteba and the Sierra de las Nieves. With barely 500 inhabitants, Serrato is an ideal destination to learn about rural life in the Costa del Sol and discover the natural beauty of its surroundings. The hospitality and character of its people will win you over.




To begin your visit to Serrato, we recommend you start with the Church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario. It was built at the start of the 16th century after the Christian Reconquest of the villages in the Ronda mountain range. Over the course of the last centuries, the temple has been restored on various occasions. The last restoration was in 2009.

Furthermore, we recommend you visit the popular Fuente del Caño. It is difficult to know for sure when the fountain was built, but it was last restored in 2008. The excess water from the fountain reaches an old well, located a few metres down below, at the entrance of the village.
