La Axarquía
La Axarquía is a district that occupies the eastern part of the Malaga province. The area stretches from the imposing mountain range of the nature parks "Sierras de Almijara and Tejeda" down to the Mediterranean. The climate is mild and sunny. Already from the beginning of January, the hills are covered in white by the beautiful flowers of the almond trees. Spring awakes early in our region. In February, the first wild flowers appear and the countryside suddenly turns green.

Ours is a quiet land without congestion, ideal to enjoy relaxed vacations. At the same time, however, you are close to many of the attractions that are available on the Malaga coastline. The beaches are close and the city of Malaga is only a short trip by car. Not much farther away, you can spoil yourself with the numerous temptations the world famous Costa del Sol has to offer. Only a few hours by car are needed to discover the historic cities of Andalusia, like Ronda, Granada, Córdoba or Seville.

In order to explore our region, we recommend the following existing routes:

ROUTE OF THE RAISINS; OF THE SUN AND AVOCADO; OF THE SUN AND THE WINE; OF THE MUDEJAR, OF THE CLIFFS; ETC.
For hiking fans, there are many routes that pass by El Borge, and some of them are marked by signs.

The nature park "Sierra de Almijara and Tejeda" is about 30 car minutes away from El Borge; the nature park "Montes de Malaga" only 1 hour by car, and the nature park "El Torcal de Antequera" is only 1 h 15 min away. All nature parks have routes that are well marked and highly recommended for hikers, especially in autumn, winter and spring.

Only some kilometres away from Nerja (50 minutes by car from El Borge) are the cliffs of Maro, a protected nature park with clear waters and small coves, which can only be reached on foot.
