Competa (Malaga area)
You find Competa approx. a half hour drive from the coast at Costa del sol. Competa is a very beautiful mountain village where really feel that you are high above sea level. The trip up to Competa is an experience in itself. You get to drive on mountain roads that wind through the Andalucian landscape. But the great views are worth the while.
Competa has an authentic Spanish atmosphere with its narrow streets and lovely squares and it’s easy to find a great restaurant which prices are lower than at the coast.
Competa is an excellent example of a city that despite its growth, has managed to preserve its originality and charm, without letting the tourism take over. You find everything you need like; banks, pharmacy, shopping, restaurants, Internet cafe, etc.
