At 850 metres above sea level, and located in the Serrania de Ronda, Cartajima is one of the most beautiful corners of the province of Malaga. Sunsets where the colours of the sky mix with the vegetation of the Genal Valley are a natural spectacle you will not forget. In this village you will also see the way the traces of the Arab past, with its winding streets and whitewashed houses, are interspersed with the style of the eighteenth-century buildings.




The town of Cartajima boasts archaeological sites from different ages. The remains of the Roman baths of Cañada del Harife and the necropolis of Cortijo del Ratón are well preserved. From the medieval period, we can see the castle and the ancient towns of Casapalma y Cartabón. From the Al-Andalus period, we recommend the Fuente de los Peces, of Moorish origin, located on the Arroyo Blanco path.

In the locality, the church of Our Lady of the Rosary is one of the most remarkable buildings. Built in the sixteenth century, the temple is located in the highest part of town, opposite the Town Hall. Inside, it houses the images of the Virgen del Rosario, Saint Joseph, and the Baby Jesus.
