Comares is a town in the province of Malaga, Andalucia, located in the foothills of the mountains at 703 metres above sea level. It's one of the 31 villages that make up the region of Axarquia, known as the "balcony of the Costa del Sol". The village is of Arab origin, built around a fortress with winding, narrow streets and white houses with geraniums in the windows. As you stroll through the maze of streets, you'll find the remains of old Arab settlements: the fortress, the hill of Mazmúllar, and more. You can buy the local hand-embroidered clothes, and it's particularly famous for its spectacular hats. In terms of cuisine, the local specialty is a gazpacho-like soup. You can also visit Spain's largest flying fox, 436m long and over 110m high.
In the northern part of the Sierra Bermeja in Estepona, Malaga, about 6 km before reaching Genalguacil and crossing an areas of oaks, pines and chestnuts we found Quejigo stream (a tributary of Almarchal) which has one of the best pools to cool off in summer - the Charco Azul. The name comes from its clear waters and two impressive waterfalls - it's really exotic and heavenly.
