White Villages

The white villages of Andalusia have captivated the hearts of visitors to Spain since time immemorial. Travellers have recounted their experiences in magazines, newspapers, books, radio and TV – but few can really convey the true essence of the pueblos blancos as well as a visit can. This fascinating full day tour covers the spectacular Grazalema and Ronda ranges and takes in an exhilarating hike through the Garganta Verde gorge. The adventure begins through the countryside of Seville. Our route takes us to the hillside hamlet of Zahara de la Sierra, which nestles between a rocky outcrop dominated by a Moorish tower and a lake. Wander the narrow cobbled alleys of a village that has barely been touched by the sands of time. Continue through the Sierra de Grazalema, passing through lush fir forests until we reach the Garganta Verde, where we alight for the scenic trail. Admire the dramatic landscape, maybe see vultures in flight and enjoy beautiful views of the Serrania de Ronda in the distance. Arrive at picturesque Grazalema and feast on a great Andalusian lunch made with local products. Afterwards, burn off the calories with a hike before visiting either Arcos de la Frontera or Ronda, two towns that boast dramatic – and vertigo-inducing – settings as well as a wealth of beautiful buildings.
