Árchez is a small village in the province of Málaga, in southern Spain. The village is situated approximately 21 kilometres from Vélez Málaga. It has a population of approximately 408 residents, which are known as Archeros.

Archez is located on the foothills of the Sierra Almijara on the scenic Mudejar Route which winds its way through some of the most picturesque white-washed villages of the Axarquia.

Archez has a beautiful valley setting. The River Turvilla runs through the village. Following the course of the river, a beautiful walk takes you up into the hills and into the neighbouring village of Canillas D'Albaida. Along the course of the river, are the remains of three old flour mills, an indication of Archez's previous status as an important farming village. Today, most of the village slopes are filled with vines, avocado and olive trees, and the local farmers can be seen with their mules collecting their harvests.

The peaceful village comes alive for one weekend in August when its annual Fiesta takes place. Fireworks, music and the famous horse race transform this sleepy village into a 24hr party venue as the Archeros celebrate in style. Adjoined to the parish church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnacíon is a 16th century Mudéjar tower whose minaret dates from the 13th century.

A walk through the tiny village streets reveals clusters of traditional houses.
