OUR TOURIST GUIDE TO VELEZ-MALAGA

Velez-Malaga is the largest municipality in the region, considered to be, since the fourteenth century, the natural capital of Axarquía, of great importance for its history, culture and wealth, and whose Old Town is declared a Historic-Artistic Site.

The history of this municipality begins with the occupation of the Alcazaba-Fortaleza area by the Chalcolithic, where a town was built and remained until the seventh century BC.

Velez-Malaga, the cradle of different civilizations, has forged generations of artisans who have passed their legacy over the centuries: potters, chair-makers, tinsmiths, embroiderers, meat curers and glassmakers.

MUST VISIT IN VELEZ-MALAGA

The municipality historical-artistic heritage is located in the Old Town, in the maze of streets and squares of the municipality central area of the historic quarter. Regarding the municipalities and places of interest, if you are interested in civil monuments you can visit the Marqués de Beniel Palace and Casa de Cervantes. You can also visit Casa Larios (Torre del Mar), El Pósito, Teatro del Carmen and Fuentes de Fernando VI y San Francisco. As for the main religious monuments, you can visit the churches of Santa María de la Encarnación and San Juan Bautista. On the other hand, Velez-Malaga stands out for its Muslim past, so you cannot miss its Arab remains.

Another way to enjoy the city is walking and taking pictures along the promenade and the marina. The municipality has 22 linear coastline kilometres.

You can enjoy going to the beach practically all year round thanks to the pleasant weather. For those who love nature, we have other ideas: visit natural areas such as the estuary of Velez river, the Andalusia Park or Los Remedios Garden Park. We also recommend you to visit the park honouring the philosopher María Zambrano who was born in this municipality.

The cuisine of this area offers a wide variety of Phoenician and Arab flavours, especially based on wine and olive oil. You cannot miss typical dishes such as fried pescaíto, grilled sardines, garlic cod, fried pumpkin with blood sausage, cod omelettes with honey, refreshing ajoblanco, and sweets such as wine bread roll and fried oil pastry. And do not forget about Velez’s tropical fruits that give us exquisite recipes such as avocado smoothie, guacamole or an exquisite mango jam.
