This is a short walk from the centre and the 360° views are amazing- you can see for miles. The gardens surrounding it are very pretty and sections of it provide much needed shade. The church was open when we visited and is very different inside due to modern paintings on the walls - we really liked it.

We visited as a family with 2 children who both enjoyed it. There are amazing frescos inside the church painted by Evaristo Guerra. They depict the scenes of velez malaga working life & how people lived in the areas around it. We visted as part of a tour guide led group with the company "PlanAMalaga" and our fantasitc guide Elena. She brought the painting alive for us with all the history & letting our chilrend find hidden things in the paintings. The views from outside are amazing. You see down to the coast & back to the mountians. There are many photos pinned in front of alters inside as many people bring them asking for favours as in English the name translates to Chapel of Our Lady of the Remedies. Also a great bonus for people travelling with children there are toilets there. There is also a little playground just down the hill from the church.

Hidden treasure, must to see east of Malaga. Unexpected gem, kept by Spaniards for Spaniards? Evaristo Guerra painted the walls with murals showing local people and traditions, very interesting.

Very pleased we found this place. The gardens are lovely and the chapel beautiful. We came up again when it was dark when it was all lit up and it was magical. The views are amazing. In the day you can see down to the coast and at night you can see all of Velez lit up.

This church is on one of the three hills in Velez Malaga. Funded with European money, the area has been cleaned and landscaped and although we did not visit the church locked on our day of arrival, the peace and serenity of the area was magical. As were the panoramic views from the precincts of this 4000 year old castle.
If you are in the Axarquia, take advantage of the ample free parking to spend some time looking out over the valley imagining spotting marauding invaders off far. Magic!

It's a bit of an uphill hike, but the Chapel of Our Lady of the Remedies is well worth the effort. It is set in beautiful gardens with water features and has fabulous views across to the fortress, La Fortaleza, and down to the sea. It is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Inside, the wall paintings were done by one man over 12 years, a real labour of love.

Church is actually “Ermita de la Virgin de los Remedios”, named after the towns patron saint and a place of pilgrimage for devout locals. It can be seen from a distance perched on a hill opposite the fortifications and tower located on the other surrounding high point. You can drive most of the way and walk long the renovated path to the balcony area with it’s fine views. An interesting story relates to the Virgin’s Statue which was removed during the Civil War and replaced with a replica which fooled Republicans into destroying what they thought was the original. Something different from other churches are interior walls with murals depicting local life. Check opening times in advance if you intend visiting inside. However, even if you can’t get inside the church it’s worth a visit for the views alone.

This church is perched high on a hill that has had a new park developed around it. It was a beautiful walk to get there and what I thought was going to be a plain church inside, but it was a beautifully frescoed church inside. These are relatively new frescoes. The church itself was built in the 1600s. It doesn't look like a working church from the outside - we thought it had been developed into a house, but looks can be deceiving! It's worth a quick visit.

Beautiful outside and treasure inside.
The walls are covered by paintings from local artist during 14 years of hard work.
They visualize the life of local habitants in their every day life. And the walls picture the surrondings outside as they appear in each direction. Thus the name for transparent church. Also the hill around the church is well kept and has sculptures that match the views. The hill is quite steep but not too high to walk up. But you can take car to parking slot up there too.

Beautifully kept area and if you get there between 9.30am and 1pm the church should be unlocked, inside it is extremely well kept also. Views of the town are fabulous and you can see many of the other interesting buildings that you can easily walk to and explore. Lovely way to spend a few hours
