Riogordo is a small Village and municipality of around 3,000 inhabitants in the Malaga province. It is situated in the centre of the region of Axarquía that runs east and inland from Malaga as far as Nerja. It is located 40 kilometers from Malaga and 30 km from Velez-Malaga. Nestled in the lowlying mountains (between the Montes de Málaga and the higher sierras), it is one of the most classic Andalucian "white villages". It is equidistant between Malaga and Velez-Malaga, both of which are little more than 30 minutes by car. A very pretty and popular area for property buyers.
