RURAL TOURISM IN MÁLAGA | FOUR MORE PROPOSALS
The La Posada Morisca rural hotel stands on the side of the Natural Park of the Mountains of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, which covers an area of 40,662 hectares. It is in an area perfectly suited to nature and active tourism activities.
For this, the hotel has a group of specialists and qualified staff who will offer you guidance and assistance in these activities. If you prefer to do your own thing, we recommend four excursions which are especially interesting:
RURAL TOURISM IN MÁLAGA: PLAN 1
THE REGION OF AXARQUÍA
La Posada Morisca is situated on the eastern edge of the province of Malaga, on the border with Granada, in the heart of the region of Axarquía.
These lands of Axarquía combine to offer a warm coastal area and an inland area where the mountains are lost in the snow-covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada.
Within this enormous mountain range are the mountains of Alhama, Tejada and Almijara, recently declared a Natural Park. Here the Peak of La Maroma stands majestically, the highest point in the province of Malaga at a height of 2066 metres.
The history of the region is undoubtedly linked to the passage of the Arabs through these lands who gave, not only their name, but also their customs and culture which have remained unaltered over the passing of time.
On your travels through Axarquía you can follow five tourist routes: La Ruta del Vino (Wine), La Ruta del Sol y Subtropical (Sun and Subtropical, also known as the avocado route), La Ruta Mudéjar (Mudejar), La Ruta de la Pasa (Raisin) and La Ruta del Aceite y de los Montes (Oil and the Mountains).

THE NATURAL PARK OF THE MOUNTAINS OF TEJEDA, ALMIJARA AND ALHAMA
Its peaks act as a natural border between the provinces of Malaga and Granada. The mountains of Tejeda and Almijara are on the Malaga side, in the heart of the region of Axarquía.
Tejeda Mountain is the highest part in this mountain range, with the peak of La Maroma reaching 2066 metres. From here, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Mediterranean coast and neighbouring mountains, frequented by trekkers and mountaineers.
Throughout the area there are also important caves to be found, including Nerja Cave.

A DAY DISCOVERING FRIGILIANA
Frigiliana is a town with clear Mudejar character, the architecture of which reveals its Arab origins.
It is the town preserving the most significant popular architecture of this origin in the province. Unsurprisingly it is the most awarded town in the Region of Axarquía.
In 1982 it achieved its highest recognition when it was awarded the I National Award for Beautification and Improvement of Spanish Towns.
Based on the last census, its population is 2237 inhabitants and the town covers an area of 39 km2.
Of the places of interest which are worth a visit in the town the main ones are the Fuente Vieja (old fountain), San Antonio church, the Real Expósito (ancient silo), Santo Cristo de la Caña chapel and the Renaissance Palace of the Counts of Frigiliana.

NERJA AND ITS CAVES
The municipality of Nerja is a star destination in the Costa del Sol thanks to its beaches, atmosphere and pleasant climate all year round.
This city is just 8 km from La Posada Morisca.
In the outskirts of the town, in the town of Maro, are the spectacular Nerja Caves, discovered in 1959 and declared a Cultural Heritage Site in the category Archaeological Area.
In its passages you can admire cave paintings of seals which could have been the first work of art known in the history of humanity, dating back around 42,000 years.
