The Route of Sun and Wine
The Route of Sun and Wine is 55 kilometres long, running through the eastern area of Axarquia. It passes both inland and along a stretch of coastline. It traverses the municipalities of Algarrobo, Sayalonga, Competa, Canillas de Albaida, Torrox, Frigiliana and Nerja.
The route includes important tourist resorts at Nerja, Torrox Costa and Algarrobo Costa.
The inland villages lie within the foothills of the Sierra Almijara mountain range and have retained much of their original Moorish structure.
The main agricultural product in the areas surrounding these villages is the grape, from which many very good wines are produced.
