Alfarnatejo in the Malaga province is one of the seven towns that form the so called Ruta del Aceite y Los Montes, and is also popularly known as “the Southern Pyrenees”. This is because the peaks in its surrounding areas, such as the Dona Ana, the Alto de Fraile and the Tajo de Gomer, are some of the most breathtaking of the province.
