Located at about 700 metres above sea level, in the foothills of the Montes de Málaga, Comares is known for being a natural viewpoint of the region, dominating a large part of La Axarquía. It stands out, within its surroundings, as an important landscape landmark, with its white houses crowning the mountain side and overlooking hills covered in vine, olive and almond trees.
Its name describes the place rather appropriately, coming from the Arabic word "Qumaris", which means "Castle in the height". Despite of its Arabic name and many obvious traces, the town was actually founded by the Phocaean Greeks, who arrived on the coasts of Málaga in the 7th century BC.
The main economic activity of the municipality is agriculture, with a rise in rural tourism, especially in recent years. Its registered population was, in 2020, 1,330 habitants, with an important rise in foreign residents.
Its privileged location has allowed for several climbing "via ferratas" to be installed (a route that employs steel cables, rungs or ladders, fixed to the rock to which the climbers affix a harness to secure themselves to the metal fixture and limit any fall), among them the actual first of its kind in the Axarquía region, called La Fuente Gorda.
