Genalguacil, village - museum surrounded by chestnut trees
Before visiting Genalguacil, we spent the morning following some of the trails of the Royal Spanish Fir Forests in the Bermeja mountains, 35km of which separate the Ronda mountain range or serranía from the Costa del Sol. The area boasts spectacular views, though its main attraction is undoubtedly the small enclaves of Spanish firs. A Natural Landscape with 1,236 protected hectares that are well worth a visit. Another of the routes recommended for getting to know this this area is the 4th stage of the Great Málaga Path, which passes close to Genalguacil.
In the evening, we began our walk around Genalguacil from Calle la Lomilla, where we were able to enjoy stunning views of the chestnut groves in autumn. As we walked on, we came across several corners and streets with surprising and original works of art, making this village a museum in its own right.
We then took a break to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Here we could look at works by artists who take part in the village's famous Art Encounters, which take place every two years in August.
Lastly, we headed for the La Lomilla Viewpoint and the Church of San Pedro de Varona. We continued along calle Estación, where we saw new sculptures, up to calle Real, which brought us to the edge of the village where we started.
