Surroundings

The Cortijo La Reina Hotel is part of a 150,000 m2 land, located near the Montes de Malaga Natural Park, 20 minutes away from the city and 30 minutes away from the airport. Its remarkable situation, 800 m. high, makes possible to enjoy beautiful views to the sea and the valley.

Close to the hotel are Colmenar, Archidona, Casabermeja and other villages in the region of the Montes de Malaga and La Axarquia. Likewise, El Candado, Guadalhorce, Parador de Torremolinos and Añoreta - some of the many golf courses in Malaga- are very near.

The land has several pathways to walk around and enjoy nature. Besides olives, pines, almond trees and holm oaks, there is a wide variety of fruit trees: orange , grapefruit and kiwi trees, avocados and so on, up to a total of 27 species. Likewise, there is a wide variety of bird species that live in the land: sparrows, chaffinches, woodpeckers, goldfinches, eagles and sparrow hawks, among others.

Montes de Málaga

The Montes de Malaga Natural Park belongs, in part, to the Axarquia territory and, in part, to the Montes de Malaga region. It occupies an area of 411.72 Km2 with olives, almond trees, pines, old holm oaks and other vegetable species. Among its vast fauna the “cabra malagueña” (a kind of goat) is one of its most important autochthonous breed.

We can find a natural rich area as well as a heritage whose origin goes back to prehistory. Examples of archaeological interest are the Cueva de los Chivos and La Pulsera, both in the Colmenar area. The track of the Arabic culture and the medieval period is present at the town planning and monuments in the region; some of them considered as historic and artistic ones (like the Algibe de Comares).

Another relevant aspect of the culture in the region is folklore. The “Verdiales”-deep-rooted popular folk songs from Malaga-are the best example.
