Grazalema is a pretty, picture-postcard village with steep, cobbled streets nestling in a corner of beautiful mountains beneath the craggy peak of San Cristobal.
Plaza de España, the main square is the heart of the village, and is overlooked by the handsome 18th century Iglesia de la Aurora.
The village centre has Roman and Muslim remains, and is one of the best examples of the “White Andalucia Villages”.
It makes a ideal base for exploring the Parque Natural Sierra de Grazalema. This national park is an important mountainous wilderness, with the highest rainfall in Spain.
The landscape ranges from pastoral river valleys and white villages to precipitous gorges and rocky summits.
It is excellent walking country but to protect wildlife and nestling birds access is restricted to different areas at certain times.
However, the parks 517 sq km caters for all types of outdoor activity and adventure holidays.
