Cajiz is a small village situated just 27 km from Malaga and 5 km from the coast. This village is the first one you go past on the way up the hill to the larger village of Iznate. On taking time out to discover the place I wondered at the eclectic style of housing which ranges from poor ruins in desperate need of reforming to grand modern structures towering over the modest square. The 18th century parish church of San José is tucked away amongst trees and ruins. There are a couple of good bars and restaurants where you can sit and chat to the locals or just enjoy good food and drink.
