Nestled between the Sierras de Tejeda and Almijara, the heart of the Region of Axarquía, Sedella is a town that preserves the essence of its Arab past. Its white houses adorned with flowers and its surrounding streets are the hallmark of this village, which is surrounded by amazing landscapes.

Sedella is part of the Mudéjar Route, an itinerary that provides the opportunity to move to the era of Muslim domination through the Andalusian legacy that is treasured in this inland territory of the province of Malaga.

The former fortress mansion of the Lord of Sedella, known as the Torreón House, is one of the architectural jewels of the village. Built in the sixteenth century in Mudejar style, it belonged to Diego Fernández de Córdoba, servant of the Crown of Castile. The building which is privately owned, stands out because of its tower, which mixes the Renaissance style with the Moorish aesthetic.

During the same era the church of San Andrés was built, from which the old bell tower is preserved. Its interior houses interesting sculptures and objects of worship from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

On the outskirts of the village you can see the seventeenth century hermitage of the Virgin of Hope. This shrine, presided over by the images of Our Lady of Hope and St Anton, is integrated into the remains of the ancient Arab castle of Sedella.

Because of the importance it had for the social life of the town, the public laundry, located at the entrance of the village, is also worth a visit.
