On route through five white towns in Malaga

The province of Malaga includes charming white towns, which extend between sierra de Sierra de Cádiz y la Serranía de Rondawhose beauty lies in the fact that they rise majestically on top of slopes and hills and are embraced by an imposing landscape, dominated by forests of pines, firs, cork oaks and holm oaks.

In them, tranquility, beauty, the charming white houses, the everyday, the typical and the pure air take center stage, constituting a full-fledged invitation to get lost in its streets and even to inhabit them. Today we travel through the most picturesque and charming white towns in Malaga.

Casares sis located between Costa del Sol, la Serranía de Ronda y el Campo de Gibraltar, , so it has a very diverse landscape: from very high peaks and rugged lands to a small portion of coast. Ordered to be built by Julius Caesar, it constitutes an archetype of a white town, as it is crossed by narrow, steep streets and decorated with a string of whitewashed houses.

In addition, it houses beautiful architectural gems, such as the Church of La Encarnación, which has earned it recognition as a Historic-Artistic Site and nearby places of interest such as the Ballesteros or Hedionda caves. Without forgetting its gastronomy, in which mountain rabbit and the Casareña soup are the most traditional delicacies. son las delicias más tradicionales.

Between the Genal and Guadairo valleys, in the heart of the beautiful Serranía de Ronda, Serranía de Ronda, is ATAJARE, this picturesque town, which allows us to understand that time can also pass in another way, that is, calmly and patiently. It is crossed by a few streets, dotted with houses with colorful flower pots in the windows, and presided over by the beautiful church of San Roque.On top of that, its inhabitants produce a rich local juice and make delicious traditional Moorish sweets such as “enreaíllo”.

A few kilometers from Atajate, on the road that connects Ronda with Campo de Gibraltar,we come across ALGATOCIN, this town with a rural soul and a very traditional spirit. Its urban framework dominated by very steep streetsis striking, overlooking houses painted in pristine white and some architectural treasures such as the charming church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario, which stands out for the unusual blue dome that crowns the bell tower. From the Genil viewpoint you will have the opportunity to contemplate the most wonderful panorama, so don't forget your camera.

Located in the heart of the Genal valley, GAUCIN constitutes the gateway to the steepest towns in this region, as they are arranged to favor the flow of the Genal River. Among its streets, which preserve the old Moorish layout,there is a string of white houses with balconies and hand-made wrought iron railings and wonderful buildings such as the church of San Sebastián or the fountain of the six spouts.

The top of the hill on which the town sits preserves the remains of the old Águila castle,from where you will also have the privilege of contemplating an impressive landscape dominated by the meeting of the Genal river with the Guadairo, embraced by forests of cork oaks, holm oaks. and chestnut trees and outlined on the horizon by Gibraltar and the African coast.

This tiny town of BENALAURIA is located on a hill surrounded by a chestnut forest,which hides it and makes it go unnoticed by those traveling on the road that connects Guacín with Ronda. In autumn it acquires its maximum splendor, as it paints the surrounding nature in ocher and brown colors, which you can discover by walking one of its many trails.

In its few steep streets, where you can still breathe the Moorish past, you can see some beautiful buildings such as the church of Santo Domingo, the town hall houses originally from the 17th century, the Ethnographic Museum, which is an excellent opportunity to delve into the local way of life, or the columbarium of Cortijo del Moro,a site of Roman origin that preserves remains of an ancient Roman villa and a funerary pantheon.
