It borders into the Guadiaro river at the bottom and another river runs on the right side of the land which has beautiful rock pools and small waterfalls.

There is an abundance of water as the land is the major contributor to the Guadiaro river. There are restrictions in the national forest, you have to have 25 hectares there obviously an excess.

There's no restriction on the size of a property but only one house can be built luckily it can be two stories. You can also build stables if you have horses. There are restrictions on materials, only non-reflective materials can be used. The land consists of very large terraces and small terraces all are very private.

On a clear day with uninterrupted green views and a mountain range that hides the coast you can see Morocco. The local village has a railway which runs to San Roque Gibraltar and the other direction goes to Ronda and beyond.


There are archaeological remains in areas like the Cueva de las Pelusas or the Cortijo de Gonzalo in the Zorrera stream area. It is clear that the area was inhabited as far back as Neolithic times and also during the Metal Ages.

About the Area

Colmenar is a quiet suburban village amid mountain landscapes on the edge of Montes de Malaga nature park. Hiking trails lead through pine forests to waterfalls and lookout points. Sleepy streets are dotted with centuries-old convents, churches, and traditional taverns serving rustic Andalusian-style roast meat dishes. Visitors shop for regional honey, wine, and olive oil at small artisanal stores.

Convent of the Virgin of La Candelabra

It is well worth a walk up to the highest point of the village, at the Convent of the Virgin of La Candelaria. It is also known as the 'Ermita' (hermitage) de la Candelaria. From the viewpoints, you can see the Tajo and Dona Ana gorges and looking to the right is the Sierra Nevada, snow capped in the colder months. The story is that this 17th century convent was built as a token of gratitude from a group of fishermen who were miraculously saved from death during a terrible storm off the shores of Malaga. The plasterwork in the vault reflects the mannerist design of that era. In a niche, you can see an image of La Candelaria, the patron saint of Colmenar.

Church of Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion

Church of Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion was built in the 16th century. There are signs of Arab influence in its architecture, especially in the three aisles with very high ceilings and separated by arches on square pillars.
