Colmenar. Tales and legends

The brief descriptions in this publication bring together not only the legends that are still alive in popular heritage, but also those traditions of an uncertain origin which until recently have been an everyday practice in the Axarquia.

This selection of accounts which over recent centuries have gone from mouth to mouth in the towns of the Axarquia, aim to inform the visitor of aspects which are only known to the inhabitants of the area and, why not, to show how, starting from facts of which we are not totally sure, they have been able to turn into a story and turn that slight reality into serious and passionate stories which, as in many other places, can be a source of inspiration for literature.
