The municipality of Coín is located in the region of the Guadalhorce Valley, about 33 km from the capital and about 30 from Marbella. It is an ideal inland town to visit and make a tourist stop. Walking through its streets means making an excursion through the San Agustín Park, the church of San Andrés and the Hospital de la Caridad, which will make the tourist’s walk like contemplating a museum.
It is a municipality with a rich tradition in agriculture and ceramics, where marble and sand quarries are still active today. Its landscape contrasts with the abrupt walls that have generated the activity of the quarries and the rich vegetation of its gardens. Coín, in the heart of La Huerta of Malaga, will be an ideal place to get to know different landscapes of the area and at the same time appreciate the passion for tradition.
In its urban centre you can visit the church and the convent of Santa María de la Encarnación, the tower of the old convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians or their cave.
If you are going to visit Coín, you can start the tour through the San Agustín Park, at the entrance of the Town, this being one of the main and most beautiful parks that we can find. Continue to the Plza. Santa María, where the old Convent and Church of Santa María de la Encarnación (15th century) is located, an old Arab Mosque that was later converted into a Catholic temple, being, at that time, the first Parish of Coín.
Going up the street Santa María y Cárcel, you can see the Plaza Bermúdez de la Rubia, the Church of San Juan Bautista (S. XVI), a historical artistic monument with classical, Gothic and Mudejar elements, in which the Patron of the town, the Virgen de la Fuensanta, only 11 cm high, is honoured, a gothic work from the late fifteenth century.
Continuing the walk through Calle Cárcel, we come into the typical narrow streets that make up the Old Town of the city. When turning to the left by Moreno Maldonado street we can refresh ourselves in the emblematic fountain of Plazuela La Luna, get to know the singularity of Molinos and Santo Cristo street until we get to the San Andres Plazuela.
We continue our walk along Calle San Andrés until we reach Calle Mesones and exit to the Square of the Town hall, the Alameda. On the back part of the Saint who presides over the Alameda we will take Calle la Cruz to see the Trinitarios Tower, with a triangular floor.
To end the walk through the centre of the city we can go down again to San Agustín Park, but this time we will go down the street to the street la Feria y Vicario to be able to observe the commercial streets of our town and to be able to take a memory of it with us and have a drink and taste some wonderful tapas in any of our bars.
On the outskirts of the municipality we also find other monuments that are worth visiting because of their historical and cultural value.
