What to do
If you wish to experience the very best mountain walks with breathtaking views and amazing scenery, but without long, tiring uphill trecking for hours and hours, then pack a picnic and experience El Torcal!
At each end of a small tree-lined walkway near the town centre of Velez-Malaga, known as the Paseo de Andalucía, are what we generally call the “Walking trees” and they are certainly worth a look.
Just ten minutes’ drive North of Escuela La Crujia is the most magnificent and beautiful man-made reservoir known as La Viñuela. It provinces water for the whole area and often for Malaga city and is essential for our existence here. But it is also a most beautiful place to visit.
Visit the world famous caves, following by a stroll through the picturesque nearby village of Frigiliana, maybe a spot of lunch, and on to a lost mountain village full of surprises!
If you wish to combine nature and a leisurely walk through beautiful countryside in the shade of a canopy of poplar trees along a river bank, followed by lunch, and a cool splash and a sun bathe, this is a great day trip to make from Escuela La Crujia
This is a day trip for lovers of beautiful, unspoilt and spectacular countryside, devised to offer you a taster of real, natural Spain in a round trip that you will not forget!
This lovely town is totally trapped in time! It still has very old fashioned little shops and lovely, crumbling buildings that look more central European than Southern Spanish! Perched precariously on steep, deep ‘tajo’ (gorge), this is a most ‘visitable’, picturesque town, frequented by walking groups and curious tourists and well worth a day trip.
One of the best ways of experiencing the true Spanish spirit in all its colourful, animated glory, is to visit some of the local ferias and fiestas.
At Escuela La Crujia, we have two excellent bars and restaurants, just a few minutes walk (and 2 mins in the car) from us.
As a beach, top marks, in our opinion!!
Quiet, secluded, and a snorkeling paradise!
