In Velez Malaga a church to see
Nuestra Virgen de los Remedios, a church in Velez-Malaga is a must see. The whole church was painted by Evaristo Guerra. It is a small wonder to discover, it is decorated with rock frescoes which represent all the landscapes of Axarquia .
The painter Evaristo Guerra returns every 2 or 3 years to do some retouching. Indeed, the church being close to the sea, the sea air brings humidity and requires regular maintenance of the frescoes.
