Secrets of La Axarquia: El Borge - Comares - Buddhist Stupa & Torre Atalaya

Road Trip

Welcome to La Axarquia, a peculiar, different land. A whole orchard in which different cultures settled in the subtropical heat and a fertile by the sea.

 

Leaving from Malaga we will drive along winding roads towards our first stop: El Borge. The land of bandits and revolutions, as well as raisins and sweet wine, we will discover the ancient crypt that hides its Mudejar style church as well as its other unique and beautiful corners.

 

Our next stop is Cútar, "the fountain of paradise", before continuing our journey we will stop briefly at an ancient fountain dating back to Al-andalus.

 

Our road continues to Comares, a white village with a medina structure that rises imposingly from the rock. We will walk through its narrow streets taking a step back in time while enjoying some breathtaking views.

 

Our last stop, will take us to one of the most important stupas outside Asia. The Kalachakra Stupa of Karma Güen, a striking and peculiar place of worship.

 

From here and after only a few minutes walk we arrive at the ancient Muslim Watchtower, that once controlled the entire valley that arises at the foot of La Maroma, a main part of the defensive and communications system of its time.

"That road was sheltered by tropical aromas. The path made its way between hills to take us to that vortex where the sea almost embraces the sky. With a special, different vibration, it keeps eastern secrets. Sometimes as far away in space as in time..."
