Located between the Sierras de Tejeda and Almijara in the heart of the Axarquía region, Sedella still conserves an air of its Arab past. White houses adorned with flowers and quiet streets are the hallmarks of this village surrounded by breath-taking landscapes.

Sedella forms part of the Ruta Mudéjar, a route that gives visitors the chance to go back in time to the Al-Andalus period and enjoy the legacy stored up in this stunning destination in inland Malaga.




The former mansion fortress belonging to Señor de Sedella, known as Casa Torreón, is one of the village"s architectural gems. Built in the 16th century in a Mudéjar style, it once belonged to Diego Fernández de Córdoba, a servant to the Crown of Castile. The most outstanding feature of this now privately owned building is its fortified tower, which mixes a Renaissance style with a Moorish aesthetic.

The Iglesia de San Andrés was built over a temple from the same era. The only surviving part is the old bell tower. Inside this church, there are interesting sculptures, a pyx and objects of worship from the 17th and 18th centuries.

On the outskirts of the village, you can see the Ermita de la Virgen de la Esperanza, a chapel from the 17th century. Adorned with images of Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza and San Antón, this sanctuary forms part of the remains of the old Arab castle of Sedella.

It is worth checking out the public wash house located at the entrance to the village. This spot was once the epicentre of social life.
