Villanueva del Trabuco

Villanueva del Trabuco is a town in the district of Nororma, in the province of Malaga, near the Sierra de San Jorge and Sierra Gorda. The beautiful mountain scenery, with an abundance of streams and water resources, make this the perfect place for hiking, cycling routes and other thrilling adventure sports tree-top walking.

It should also be noted that the source of the river Guadalhorce, the main river in the province of Malaga, is also in this town.




The Fuente de los Cien Caños (the 100-spout fountain) marks the source of the River Guadalhorce. A visit to this huge complex built into the rock from which a veritable display of water spurts forth, is a must.

In the town centre, visit the church of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, constructed in the 18th century, with a notable bell tower.

The hermitage of the Virgen del Puente lies both physically and emotionally in the heart of the village.

Other religious buildings include the hermitage of Pilar, the hermitage of San Antonio, the hermitage of San Isidro Labrador and the hermitage of San Juan and the Virgen del Carmen.
