More than 300 days of sunshine a year, unspoilt nature and a well-preserved cultural heritage make Andalucía the ideal walking and holiday region all year round. Here you already get spring fever in January among the blossoms of the almond trees, the grain fields already color summery ocher in May and every season the landscape looks completely different.
Not fond of driving for hours to go walking? No problem. The tourism departments of Almogía, Casabermerja, Colmenar and Villanueva de la Concepción mapped several trails suitable for any type of walker. Expect beautiful sceneries, charming villages, some steep 'goat' paths and an interesting fauna and flora.
Follow the shells and imagine yourself a pilgrim on your way to Santiago de Compostela.
The 3 stages of the Camino Mozárabe that cross our region take you along river beds, steep climbs and descents, magnificent views, bare mountain tops, the nature park El Torcal, olive groves and some typical white villages from Puerto de la Torre/Junta de los Caminos to Antequera.

Until recently, this almost 8-kilometer "King's path" path was considered to be one of the most dangerous in the world. Today the entire route has been carefully restored and although it's now much safer, one thing hasn't changed - the unique experience of strolling along walkways hanging over 100 metres up on a sheer cliff face. Please note that you have to buy tickets in advance.
If you don't like crowds and tight schedules, the ‘El Saltillo’ route, that starts in Canillas de Aceituno, definitely is a good alternative. One of the highlights is the crossing of the wire bridge at a hight of 50m over the Almanchares river. It's 50m long and 1,20m wide.
Andalucía has 24 national parks, some of which you can explore from Casa Sarandy. Marked trails take you over wooded hills and bare mountain peaks, along fields full of wild flowers or goat herds. Our favorites: Montes de Málaga, Sierra de las Nieves, Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Tejeda .
Don't forget to put ‘El Torcal’ on your list. This nature reserve is one of the most beautiful and impressive geological nature parks of Andalucía. The unique rock formations take you to a 'jurassic world'. Maybe you will spot some vultures or ibexes during your walk.
Due to our central location, Casa Sarandy is the ideal base for a walking tour in the historic centers of Málaga, Córdoba, Ronda, Antequera or Granada.
You will pass monumental buildings and squares, you can 'get lost' in the narrow alleys or enjoy in the shady parks.
