A few words about the church and Velez-Malaga
This church in Velez Malaga, Ermita Nuestra Virgen de los Remedios, is a must see. The whole church was painted by Evaristo Guerra. The paintings give a special look and feel to the place.
This is a small wonder to be discovered, decorated with rock frescoes that represent all the landscapes of Axarquia.
The painter Evaristo Guerra comes back every 2 or 3 years to do some touch-ups. Indeed, the church being close to the sea, the sea air brings humidity and requires a regular maintenance of the frescoes.
