Our area offers a world of possibilities in terms of tourism. In addition to the experience of staying in a charming rural hotel in Malaga such as the El Cortijo de Salia, we are located in a strategic point from where you can visit monumental cities, make many hiking routes, visit beaches or visit white villages, among other activities.
We present below some of the places that you can visit by staying at our hotel.

Alcaucín, the town where we are located, is one of the nerve centers of the Sierra de Tejeda Natural Park, from where several of the routes leave. In addition, here is the natural monument of the Tajos del Alcázar, which you can see from the viewpoint located in its recreational area.
MONUMENTAL CITIES IN ANDALUSIA
At a suitable distance for a 1-day visit, we have two of the main cities in Andalusia. Cities full of history where you can visit monuments, museums or stroll through its most traditional neighborhoods.
Malaga, 50 minutes from the hotel, presents itself as a renewed city, where cultural life has gained great importance thanks to its museums: The Picasso Museum, The Pompidu, The Thyssen or the CAC (Center for Contemporary Art). This, together with places like its historic center, the Alcazaba or its beaches, its promenades and its gastronomic offer, will make your visit to Malaga a unique moment.
Granada, 1 hour and 15 minutes away, is another of the cities to keep in mind on your excursions from the El Cortijo de Salia. In this charming city, the Alhambra, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, stands out above all else. One of the most spectacular and visited monuments in the entire Spanish geography. Apart from this, you can visit neighborhoods such as the Albaicín or the Sacromonte and its historic center. Without forgetting to taste its famous “tapas”
CHARMING VILLAGES NEAR THE HOTEL
Villages are another of the great values of our area. Small towns that are well worth a visit and a walk to learn about the architecture and way of life of these Andalusian towns. From the hotel we can propose one-day routes to visit several of them, such as a route through white villages, among which we can highlight Comares, Canillas de Albaida or Canillas de Aceituno.
The coastal towns, 25 minutes from our hotel, are other places that you cannot miss.

GASTRONOMIC TOURIST ROUTES
Several tourist routes related to the most typical Axarquía products pass through our area. On the one hand, we have The Oil and the Axarquía Mountains Route, a route between spectacular landscapes, ranging from the mountains to the lakes, charming villages with views of the sea and, of course, vast expanses of olive trees from where The famous and reputed oil of Andalusia comes out. A perfect mix of tourism and typical gastronomy of the area.
The Sun and Avocado Route represents another of the great attractions, centered on what we could call the most representative product of Axarquía, avocado, a product that occurs in this area, along with other tropical fruits such as mango, favored by the microclimate created by the Sierra of the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park. Localities such as Vélez-Málaga, capital of the Axarquía and located 20 minutes from our hotel, stand out on this route.
The Sun and Wine Route, the Raisin Route or the Mudéjar Route complete a wide range of tourist routes closely related to the rich gastronomy of Axarquía.
