Comares is a tidy and attractive mountain village in the Axarquia. It is well worth a visit for the views alone as well as the remains of the Moorish fort.

There is a bell tower at the façade. Beside the church is the church cemetery. Below the tower there is a baptismal chapel and font. The... More
