Comares is a town in the province of Malaga, Andalucia, located in the foothills of the mountains at 703 metres above sea level. It's one of the 31 villages that make up the region of Axarquia, known as the "balcony of the Costa del Sol". The village is of Arab origin, built around a fortress with winding, narrow streets and white houses with geraniums in the windows. As you stroll through the maze of streets, you'll find the remains of old Arab settlements: the fortress, the hill of Mazmúllar, and more. You can buy the local hand-embroidered clothes, and it's particularly famous for its spectacular hats.
