A self-guided hike between the "White Villages" of the Sierra de Grazalema - Zahara, Grazalema, Montejaque and majestic Ronda.
Through the Sierra de Grazalema to Ronda
A lovely walk in the still unspoilt mountains to the west of Ronda, culminating in two nights in the Moorish cliff-top bastion. Your stays in the fabled white villages (see www.thewhitevillage.com), perched on the slopes for defence, are interspersed with glorious hillside walking through the dramatic limestone scenery of the Grazalema National Park. Ibex, eagles and griffon vultures are there for the spotting. Your walk will take you over wild mountainsides and along lush river valleys to Ronda, scene of some of the last battles of the Reconquista. Your final day is free for you to explore this fascinating town. Walked by On Foot staff: Simon, Debbie, Mary and Emma
Standard option: 7 nights as per "Itinerary".
We recommend an extra night in Benaojan to do the optional "Mr Henderson's railway" walk, or visit the Cueva (cave) de la Pileta with its extraordinary cave paintings. Extra nights available in all hotels. Suggested shorter alternatives: 6 nights (miss night 7, the last night in Ronda); 5 nights (miss nights 4 and 7, one day’s walking).
