Tejada & Almijara National Park, with an area of 100,000 acres, is comprised of an impressive mountain range dividing Málaga Province from Granada Province. Tejeda is the Axarquía region's bastion of Mudéjar Arab culture; Almijara derives its name from the Arabic word for colander, possibly referring to the speed with which rainwater drains from its lofty heights.
Travel by road to the town of Frigiliana, about an hour from the port. Note the Moorish influence in its white houses and narrow, winding streets. Your journey through rural Málaga starts here, on a route suitable only for off-road vehicles.
Learn about the area's rich history at Acebuchal, a small, picturesque village deep in the mountains. The steep mountains of Almijara showcase all their splendor here -- white limestone rocks form wild watercourses that hastily conduct mountain spring water and rainfall down to the stillness of the plains. This landscape is a forgotten corner of Andalusia.
You will visit several other villages in the Axarquía region -- the typical white villages of Andalusia.
Crossing the entire National Park, you'll ascend to Competa -- your ultimate destination at an elevation of 3,600 feet. Rest here with a taste of the sweet local wine, typical Spanish tapas, cheese and ham.
Return to the ship better acquainted with the flora, fauna and customs of Málaga's provincial countryside.
