By | 13 February, 2017 | 0 comments

Located in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, in the south of Spain. Bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, it has a coastline of 160 kilometres where you can find a multitude of beaches and marinas. In the interior of the province, the beautiful architecture of the white villages and the historic centre of cities such as Ronda stand out. There are also more than 15 protected nature reserves.

Its gastronomic offer is mainly based on fried fish such as anchovies, red mullet, horse mackerel, and typical recipes such as gazpachuelo.

During your stay at Gran Hotel Miramar you can enjoy excursions that can take up half a day.

We recommend a visit to the following places:

Antequera and its Torcal

Located in the north of the province, it is the centre of the region what bears its name. It has its origins in Anticaria, the ancient Roman name, and later Antaquira in Arabic.

It conserves an extensive archaeological and architectural heritage from its past, with several dolmen complexes, as well as numerous churches, convents and small palaces from different periods and styles. Its physical surroundings include the natural site of El Torcal, famous for the whimsical shapes of its limestone rocks, which form one of the most important karst landscapes in Europe.

El Torcal de Antequera is more than 1,200 metres above sea level and is a typical mid-mountain terrain. Therefore, to visit it, it is necessary to equip yourself properly: hiking boots, warm clothes, a comfortable backpack with water, etc. As it is a natural area, there are several paths and viewpoints to discover, where the most important thing is to enjoy the views.

Caminito del Rey (King’s Little Path)

This is the most popular excursion to do in the province of Malaga. A hike through a natural landscape carved by the Guadalhorce River.

King Alfonso XIII inaugurated the path in 1921, restored in 2015; today it is a spectacular and very safe path.

The route is 7 kilometres long and you walk along wooden footbridges clinging to the walls of the Gaitanes Gorge. At some points, you reach a height of almost 100 metres, so the views are breath taking.

It is a very simple route, suitable for everyone.


This is one of the most picturesque villages in the province. Here you can stroll through its stone streets that wind through houses with whitewashed façades, discover its picturesque corners and enjoy the panoramic views it offers.

A visit to what represent to be the prettiest village in the province is not to be missed.


This village changed completely in 2011 when the producers of Sony Pictures chose it as the location for the filming of Smurfs 3D movie.  All the houses were painted blue and today it is one of the children’s favourite villages.

What was originally meant to be a temporary thing, ended up staying in time, remaining in the middle of the Serranía de Ronda, this is the only official Smurf Village in the world.


The city of Marbella has an old town, where you will enjoy being in one of the white villages of Andalusia. It has narrow streets, flowerpots and charming squares. Romantic places like the Plaza de los Naranjos, monuments like the Alcazaba or flowery parks like the Alameda Park are some of the main attractions of the city.


The municipality has some of the best beaches in the province of Malaga, such as Calahonda beach, Carabeo beach, Maro beach…

However, the most famous of Nerja are its impressive caves. The Nerja Caves are 4 kilometres long and 35 kilometres wide and are home to the longest and largest stalactite in the world with a height of 33 metres.

It is also known for being the place where the legendary Spanish TV series “Verano azul” was filmed.


Belonging to the Grazalema mountain range, Ronda is one of the must-see places to visit in Andalusia. Stopping at the impressive New Bridge that joins the two banks of the river Guadalevín and admiring its houses hanging over the Tajo de Ronda from the Alameda, is one of the experiences you will never forget. Ronda is a city with a unique historical heritage that has been loved by famous people from Hemingway to Orson Wells.

You can walk along the remains of the ancient walls, visit the House of the Moorish King and visit the Arab baths where you can relax.

It is also known for its famous bullring and sweets.
