This village lies within the Parque Natural del Montes de Malaga (Malaga mountains natural park) and is also close to various other mountain ranges such as El Torcal, de Cabras, del Co and de Camorolos, as well the Arroyo de Guadalmedina and de Coche.




A cemetery is the town's most important site. It was declared an artistic-historical monument in 1980 primarily for its unique architectural value.  Since it is located on the outside of the village, clinging to the hillside, clearly visible to all the traffic on the busy Malaga to Antequera motorway.  Strangely Casabermeja is known for its cemetery.

The parish church of Nuestra Señora del Socorro is situated in the centre of the town.
