Just 30 kilometres north of Málaga, ten kilometres east of Casabermeja, and right in the middle of Los Montes, lies Colmenar, also known as the Capital of the Montes de Málaga. With a population today near 4,000, Colmenar has been populated since the Neolithical period, as testified by the remains found at the Cueva de las Pulseras. After the Reconquest, the town was named after a nearby farm known as Colmenar (apiary) for its great number of beehives, or colmenas as they are called in Spanish.
Every year Colmenar hosts a number of fiestas whether that be the spring festival in honour of the Virgin de la Candelaria, Semana Santa, the mid-summer feria or the autumn festival to celebrate the grape harvest.
The road from Malaga known as the Carretera de Colmenar brings us through pine woods and beautiful countryside to the Malaga Mountain towns in the most westerly part of the Axarquía. This too is the road to Colmenar, known as the Capital of the Malaga Mountains. On the way into the municipality we see the stone steeple called the Puerta de La Cruz, showing the coat-of-arms of the town as a beehive with seven bees flying over it. A historical scene there brings us back to the year 1488, when the town was handed over by Hamet el Zuque to Francisco de Coalla. Past this we come to the town of Colmenar itself, and looking from here we can see two hills that used to mark the limits between the urban centre and the surrounding countryside.
