The Natural Park of Montes de Málaga

Article Index


The average rainfall is just over 700 mm per year, a high proportion of which arrives in the months of November and December. Average temperatures are 17-18ºC.

Even in a relatively small Natural Park, there are 3 types of climatic influence depending upon altitude:

  • Between 400-500 metres, Mediterranean sub-tropical.
  • Between 600-700 metres, Mediterranean maritime.
  • Above 700 metres, Mediterranean temperate.

There are also several winds affecting the Montes de Malaga: Poniente (humid and relatively warm); South (strong and accompanied by high rainfall); Levante (dry and typically summer wind); Terral (channelled down the Guadalhorce valley from Antequera, which brings hot temperatures in summer and cold temperatures in winter).
