Vélez-Málaga

It is just 4 km away. Vélez-Málaga, apart from being the capital of the Axarquía, has a unique charm which lies in the unbelievable combination of coast and interior, sea and mountains. In the 70's due to its architectural quality, this city was declared Historic-Artistic Site.

 

Vélez archaeological sites prove the existence of Phoenician and Roman settlements in the current township, although the main city centre was founded around the tenth century by the Andalusian Arabs, who named it "Ballix Malaka".

 

The sea, the orography and the geographical location of the Vélez River's basin determine the microclimate of the city, which is characterized by the mildness of its temperatures, with an annual average temperature of 18 degrees and 2,935 sunny hours per year.

 

THE EASTER WEEK OF VÉLEZ


The Easter Week of Vélez, which has been declared as being of National Tourist Interest, provides the visitor with a unique experience, 18 brotherhoods carry the images of their Christs and Virgins into a procession through its historic city center and they envelope Vélez-Málaga in a scent of wax and incense and so they recall the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ through its streets.

 

The Museo Cofrade (Brother Museum) is a cultural facility that has managed a balance between the traditional Easter world and the modern museology, and all this make it a point of reference for the interpretation of this religious festivity.
