Pizarra is a tiny town lying 30 kilometres inland from Malaga in the Guadalhorce valley at the foot of the Sierra del Haco; the town is within easy reach of the capital and its international airport. It is also situated on the local railway line between Alora and Malaga and has managed to retain much of its old character charm, avoiding excessive development.
Although on the surface Pizarra appears to be a laidback white village, scratch the surface and you will find a surprising number of cafes, bars and restaurants. There is of course typical Malagueñan cuisine on offer, tapas, seafood, etc, but you will also find restaurants serving British, French and Italian food and even more astonishing are the options for a night filled with music and dance, with several nightclubs and disco bars in the town where you can have a great night out, Andalusian-style.
Pizarra also has a Municipal Museum which was created to exhibit the archaeological findings of the American painter Gino Hollander, who lived in the village for many years. When he left Pizarra to return to America he left the impressive collection to the local town. The Church of San Pedro, Palacio de los Condes de Puerto Hermoso (the Palace of the Counts of Puerto Hermoso), Hermanas de la Cruz convent and Nuestra Señora de la Fuensanta hermitage area also worth a visit.
The town enjoys the sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Divided from the sea by the mountains means the heat can soar in summer, but it remains comfortable for the most part. Temperatures are an average of 32 ºC in summer
