Description

Manilva is a municipality on the western side of the Malaga province. It is bordered by wonderful vineyards of Moscatel Grapes, which are mainly used for making sweet wine for which Manilva is famous for. Manilva's strategic position, close to the entrance to the Mediterranean, has resulted in a long history of settlement in the area going back to the Stone Age. In recent years traces of these early settlers has been found in caves in the Sierra Utrera, a ridge of limestone which runs behind the town. There is also a historically important Bronze Age hill fort which is currently the subject of a programme of excavations, as well as some remarkably well-preserved Roman sulphur baths. The beaches in the Manilva area are some of the best on the Costa del Sol, and remain fairly uncrowded during the summer months.
