Comares is a tidy and attractive mountain village in the Axarquia. It is well worth a visit for the views alone as well as the remains of the Moorish fort.

The hub of life and death for the villagers, with the usual baptism, wedding and funeral services. I am not religious, but we go to share in the lives of the people we have chosen to live among.

There is a bell tower at the façade. Beside the church is the church cemetery. Below the tower there is a baptismal chapel and font. The... More
