Mollina is a town in inland Malaga linked to the wine culture. This is attested to by its famous wines with designation of origin, its agricultural landscape dotted with vineyards and its lively Harvest Fair.

Located in the Antequera region, this municipality also has a beautiful natural environment and interesting archaeological sites. Oenology lovers will be able to combine their passion for wine in this town with cultural visits and activities in the middle of nature.


In Mollina there are important vestiges from the Roman era, such as the Castellum de Santillán. This archaeological enclave is located four kilometers from the urban area. In its 1,400 square meters of extension, buildings from the 1st to 3rd centuries can be distinguished. They correspond to the home of a family of the ruling class of the time and a walled enclosure.

Another point of historical interest is the Mausoleum of the Capuchina, a funerary monument that includes a crypt and an upper floor to worship the deceased. The site is located seven kilometers from the town, at the foot of the Camorra mountain range.

Back in the urban center, the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Oliva awaits us. Founded in the 17th century, it has a basilica plan and consists of three naves separated by semicircular arches. The temple was looted in 1936 and was used as a food warehouse.

Near this church is the Convento de la Ascensión, also known as the Cortijo de la Villa. This 18th century building stands out for its baroque style door, its patio with a chapel finished in a belfry and a peculiar sundial.
