Fodor's Review

Vélez-Málaga is the capital of the Axarquía: it's a pleasant agricultural town of white houses, strawberry fields, and vineyards. Worth quick visits are the Thursday market, the ruins of a Moorish castle, and the church of Santa María la Mayor, built in the Mudejar style on the site of a mosque that was destroyed when the town fell to the Christians in 1487.
