Alfarnatejo is a small village north of the Axarquía, located 925m above sea level and surrounded by imposing mountains, giving it the popular denomination of The Pyrenees of the South. Nature lovers could enjoy its spectacular mountain scenery, beautiful gorges or the fertile slopes. Strolling through the quiet streets, visiting the church of Santo Cristo de Cabrilla and the ruins of its Castle or enjoying the Gazpacho Festival are some of the activities offered by this town.
Whatever the season, we recommend bringing comfortable shoes and suitable clothes, incluiding warm clothes because the temperature will be low, even in summer. In addition, in summer it is advisable to bring long trousers because mosquitoes can be a problem.
In case of having a SLR camera, we recommend bringing it with a tripod.
But above all we recommend that you come eager to enjoy yourself and learn a lot.
