Casabermeja information

There is proof that this place was first inhabited by prehistoric man; we can see them in the megalithic graves unearthed at Chapera and Cortijo del Hospital. There are also some prehistoric paintings on Mogea hill and remains found in a number of small caves near Cortijo Cabrera.

There are also hints of the Arabic presence that we can clearly see on the Mozarabic settlements in the area.  The Arabs called it Q´sarBermeja or Red Castle, a term that would later be used to name the town itself. However, a popular legend has it that the name can be traced back to the reaction of Queen Isabel of Castile who, upon seeing the town for the first time, is said to have exclaimed “¡Qué casa bermeja!” (Look at that red house!) One of the mains remains of Arabic occupation is the Torre Zambra. The first written reference to the town dates back to the capture of Málaga, when a letter sent by the Catholic Monarchs ordered the building of a town.

One of the major landmarks of the town is its famous cemetery. Regarding the place it is set upon, cemetery niches needed to be adapted to the uneven land.  Even the famous writer Antonio Gala described this location as having a "bishop-like, Byzantine look to it". The oldest grave marked by a headstone to be found here dates back to 1829.

 Casabermeja town Malaga Andalucia

Casabermeja is built upon a mountain top and overlooking the banks of the River Guadalmedina and boasts a wealth of charms: narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses and monuments such as the aforementioned Torre de Zambra and others so steep that they climb higher than the upper level of the six-storey church tower, that belongs to the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Socorro. This tower has also a reddish colour which can be yet another possible explanation of the origin of the town’s name. As the town is so close to the city of Málaga, there is a large proportion of its inhabitants which work in the provincial capital. However, the local economy is still based on agriculture, primarily the cultivation of olive groves, almond trees and industrial crops.
