The drive up to Comares may seem daunting, but all is worthwhile once you arrive. A beautiful whitewashed village with winding small streets awaits, and the views of the surrounding areas are amazing. Enjoyed a tasty salad with bread and cheeses in a delightful bar....More

Great views, interesting walk around cobbled streets of Comares. We did the walk in reverse, found it easier on already tired legs. Locals will invite you into their home to sample their wares, e.g. Goats cheese, olive oil, almonds, etc.
