Cabecera Nororma

The northeastern part of Malaga, so-called Nororma, is situated in a privileged geographical location between the provinces of Granada and Cordoba and it is an important junction between them and Seville.

This region standsout not only because the wide fields of olive trees and meadows, but also because of its forests of holm oaks that alternate with grain fields. These lands offer the most important environmental resources, for example the lagoons of Archidona (La Grande and La Chica), archaeological find spots, such as the estate San Vicente, Samiaja, the cave Las Grajas, the necropolis Los Alcaides and the cave Arcos among others.

Peace, rest, tranquillity and the agricultural landscape linked with the rich gastronomy of these lands and the hospitality of its inhabitants converts Nororma in a new and interesting tourist destination for countryside lovers, including of course a rich heritage which will surprise any traveller.

All this we can find on a real crossroad, which has witnessed for ages changes of cultures and villages that welcome all kinds of visitors.

Pastries, cheese, pork, oil, grain and honey.

Pottery, goldsmithing, textile.
