Salares

The tiny village of Salares is located in the region known as the Axarquia, 58 kilometres from Malaga and 37 kilometres from the coast. It is situated in beautiful natural surroundings in the Tejeda National Park and Game Reserve.

The village forms a part of the historic Mudejar Architecture Route.

History
The area dates back to the Roman era and still has a bridge that has been preserved from this era. It was later occupied by the Moors and re-conquered by the Christians.

Around town
The town has a very small population but offers all the amenities needed for a stay in the area,
including a supermarket, restaurants, bars, health centre and free outdoor gym.

Much of the architecture seen in Salares dates back from its Moorish occupation; its an incredibly picturesque village with winding streets, a small olive factory and the beautiful Santa Ana church, which is in the Mudejar style.

Festivals
Salares hosts the Fair Al-Sarque annually for two days during September. The festival celebrates its
Moorish history and the entire village becomes a Moorish village once more. A market is set up with stalls, food, musicians and dancers from North Africa.

Eating out
There are a few traditional bars and restaurants in the village, where you will eat and soak up the
atmosphere with the locals.

Cuisine
The cuisine in Salares is typical of the Axarquia region; specialties include Ajoblanco con Uvas (Garlic Soup with Grapes), Chota a la Cazadora (Kid in Almond Sauce), Cordero Asado al Horno (Roast Marinated Lamb) and sweet Churros, fried dough sticks, a bit like donuts, dipped in hot chocolate, delicious!

Climate
Salares enjoys a typically inland Andalucia climate, being extremely hot in the summer and temperate in the winter, although when it rains the streets become awash. The residents enjoy around 2,800 hours of annual sunshine.

Salares review

Nice little town. Only a small supermarket inside for the necessary things. You have to drive 30 minutes for a larger supermarket but that is worth it to stay at such a great place.


Costa del Sol reviews

A lot of beaches/ cities and nature that you can visit.
