Acerca del barrio
Competa is full of shops, bars and restaurants where the food is both very good and reasonably priced. There are three good supermarkets, several banks, bakers, fishmongers and bodegas selling the delicious local wines for which the area is famous, as well as lovely gift shops. A market is held in the village on Saturdays until 2pm, a great place to have a coffee and soak up the atmosphere. There is horse riding and motorbiking into the mountains available locally. Walking opportunities abound from gentle slopes and river walks to high mountains, with many waymarked walks in the area. Further afield, Malaga is a beautiful city with its Moorish castle, lovely parks and shopping and, of course, Granada with the Alhambra set against the Sierra Nevada.
