The Andalucia region

Population of the city of Málaga proper was 558,287 as of 2005 estimates. Population of the urban area was 814,000 as of 2005 estimates. Population of the metropolitan area (urban area plus satellite towns) was 1,074,074 as of 2005 estimates, ranking as the fifth largest metropolitan area in Spain. Málaga, home to the new Picasso museum, is surrounded by mountains, lying in the southern base of the Axarquía hills, and two rivers, the Guadalmedina (its on the left bank) and the Guadalhorce, flow near the city into the Mediterranean.

The climate is mild and equable, the mean annual temperature being about 19 °C (66 °F). For its broad sky and broad expanse of bay the city has been compared to Naples.

The inner city of Málaga is just behind the harbour. The quarters of El Perchel, La Trinidad and Lagunillas surround this centre. The city has much revenue from the agricultural sector and from tourism.

The Holy Week, Semana Santa, and the Málaga Fair, "Feria de Málaga" are the two most well-known of Málaga's festivals.

A popular walk leads up the hill to the Gibralfaro castle (a Parador), offering extensive views over the city. The castle is next to the Alcazaba, which in turn is next to the inner city of Málaga. By taking the Paseo del Parque, a promenade that runs alongside a park with many palm trees and statues, one can walk to the harbour.


La Sierra de las Nieves (literally, the mountains of the snows) is, some would argue,one of the most beautiful National Park in all Andalucía. It is certainly one of Spain's richest natural enclaves, now protected by UNESCO with Biosphere Reserve status.

It is not particulary high, averaging 1,100 metres, with Mount Torrecilla the highest peak at 1,919 metres. It boasts an impressive array of both flora and fauna and is even more famous for its potholes, one of which is the third deepest in the world.

Although there are no towns within the Park itself, its perimeter is dotted with pretty villages, Alozaina, Casarabonela, Tolox, Guaro, Istán, Monda, Ojén and Yunquera. Of Moorish origin, they retain their narrow, winding streets and their Arabic-inspired handicraft skills.

Locally there is plenty of quality walking to be enjoyed (there is even a Roman pathway), as well as horse trekking, paragliding and a wealth of nature to be discovered.
Besides visiting the area of Sierra de las Nieves from Nuevespigas, day trips may be made to cities such as Ronda, Granada, Marbella, Antequera, El Chorro gorge and nearby lakes, Gibraltar, Cordoba, and Sevilla.

Granada, where the Alhambra is an obligated visit, is approximately a 135 km. drive from La Era. Antequera, with the enigmatic natural stone structures of El Torcal National Park close by is a mere 45 km. from La Era. El Chorro gorge and lakes is 35 km from Nuevespigas. To the monumental cities of Ronda and Sevilla there are 70 Km. and 220 Km. respectively. Marbella, city where the jet set abound is at a distance of 70 km from the villa.

As well, excellent beaches and golf courses can be found along all of the Costa del Sol - Torremolinos (45 Km.approx.), Fuengirola (55 Km. approx.), Marbella (70 Km. approx.) and Estepona (80 Km. approx.).
