Het Grazalema gebergte

As you travel between the provinces of Cadiz and Malaga, Sierra de Grazalema rises like a rocky bastion of capricious shapes among which perch the small white villages that characterise it and where the intense light enhances the colourful contrast of the surroundings. Being one of the most remote corners of Andalusia, this mountain range covered in holm oak trees and scrubland invites the traveller to get lost in all its nooks and crannies, paths and caves, where springs abound, and displays endemic flora and fauna, including the Spanish fir and the payoya goat, both very special and endangered.

A different kind of mountain range in southern Spain

Sierra de Grazalema is one of the wettest spots on the Iberian Peninsula because it receives the southwest Atlantic squalls, which together with its karst geology make this corner of rugged topography one of the most complex and attractive in Andalusia. The mountain range is full of caves, shelters, escarpments, canyons, sinkholes and poljes. In addition, archaeology and history lovers will be fascinated by the mysterious cave paintings of schematic art that some of the caves shelter, as well as the Roman ruins, Islamic fortifications, medieval hermitages, imposing mansions and the ancient traditions that still survive thanks to its people.
