Buddhist Stupa & Atalaya Tower Day Trip

1 review | 2 travellers
Manu is an excellent guide: friendly and helpful very interested in showing the panoramic vision of the Axarquía. It is a different excursion from others that I have done, less focused on monuments and more general and focused on the landscape and of course there are exceptional views in various places of the walk and how the human being has intervened in the landscape taking advantage of in an exceptional way the steep slopes of the mountains. The admirable thing about the guide is that he was in no rush.

Buddhist Stupa & Atalaya Tower Day Trip

At 10 am we'll meet at the Paseo de la Farola in Malaga and get on the minibus that'll take us to the Karma Guen Buddhist Centre. Let's go!

After a 40 minute drive, we'll arrive at the Velez-Malaga Buddhist Stupa. This monument was erected in 1994, making it the first of its kind to be built outside Asia. We'll tell you about its intricate details and what they symbolise. 

We'll walk through the Buddhist centre's rural paths while enjoying incredible views of the sea and the Tejeda and Almijara mountain ranges. Afterwards, we'll walk to the nearby Atalaya Tower, a 15th century fortress boasting Arab-style architecture.

At 12 noon we'll return to the minibus and spend the rest of the day visiting some of the region's white villages. Our first stop will be Comares, where we'll begin with a guided tour. As we walk through its narrow streets we'll discover why this village is also known as a 'castle on the heights'. After the tour, you'll have 1 hour of free time to have lunch. 

Our next stop will be Cútar. We'll head to the historic fountain and Our Lady of the Incarnation Church before hopping back on the minibus so we can go to El Borge. Did you know that El Borge was once a land of bandits? We'll walk through its streets and visit the El Rosario Church's rather peculiar crypt, which may surprise you...

At 5 pm our day trip will end as we arrive back at our starting point in Malaga.
