The Marian Route of the Guadalhorce Valley alternates the churches and hermitages in which the images of the virgins that the population of our towns passionately venerate are found.
On this route we can combine the enjoyment of the architecture and ecclesiastical heritage with the landscape of the Guadalhorce Valley, since the hermitages are located in viewpoints with privileged views.
The Guadalhorce Marian Route consists of 11 sanctuaries spread over the seven municipalities of the Guadalhorce Valley.
In our town, the route passes through the Church of San Juan Bautista and the Hermitage of Ntra. Sra. de La Fuensanta.
The hermitage is open to the public from May 1 of each year until the first weekend of June, when the traditional pilgrimage is held in honor of the patron saint, the Virgen de la Fuensanta.

In Almogía you can link this route with the Mozarabic Way of Santiago, where you will find signs that will lead you to embrace the Patron Saint Santiago.
The Mozarabic Way of Santiago has been used since the Middle Ages by pilgrims who, from Andalusia, went to visit the Tomb of the Apostle Santiago.
From Malaga, the Mozarabic Way crosses the Gudalhorce Valley through the municipality of Almogía and thanks to the important religious heritage of the region, it links this Mozarabic Way of Malaga with the Marian Route of the Guadalhorce Valley.
