Comares is one of Andalucia's most picturesque and unspoilt white hill top villages, it is perched on one of the highest peaks in the Sierra de Tejeda national park and is known as the "Balcon de Axarquia". The village was of strategic importance during Moorish times and was one of the bases of Omar ben Hafsun, at the highest point of the village there are ruins of a Moorish castle.
You can feel transported back in time as the farmers still harvest the almonds, olives, grapes and raisins as their forefathers did before. The village remains unspoilt and is a fascinating place to explore, with its spectacular views, and is ideal to pop to for an excellent lazy lunch. On the 25/26/27 August there is a local fiesta with music, dancing and fireworks which sees the whole village celebrating, and they welcome everyone to come and join in, so this is a must for people who like sampling the local culture.
