About the Axarquia
The Axarquia region of Andalucia is located in Malaga, comprising the eastern part of the province and extending from the coast to the interior of the province.
Among the towns that make up the Axarquia, historically we highlight Comares, being Velez-Malaga the largest municipality.
Comares, of Arab origin, was a strategic location that was eventually conquered in 1487 by Christian troops and which will offer on our visit a rich cuisine of which we highlight gazpachuelo and stew, well as its sweet wine, which has been recognized since antiquity.
Velez-Malaga was established as a town in the era of Al-Andalus, being a point of great defensive value and becoming one of the most important cities of the ancient kingdom of Granada which led to the birth of other villages in the surroundings after expanding the population outside the walls.
El Borge is another town in the Axarquia which keeps in its memory the fierce resistance to the Christian invasion, distinguished by its focus of rebellion.
