Today you will spend a wonderful day outdoors exploring the Grazalema Natural Park, its charming white villages and the picturesque little town of Ronda.
Morning: Transfer to Malaga via white villages & Ronda
Your private driver and tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and will take you
on a very scenic drive through the spectacular Grazalema natural park with sightseeing stops at the charming towns of Grazalema and Zahara de la Sierra. You will then have lunch at a very cosy restaurant with a terrace offering breath-taking views to the lake of Zahara.
Afternoon: Guided tour of Ronda
After lunch, you will be driven to the picturesque town of Ronda where you will have an introductory walking tour of approx. 2.5hrs including the old town, the cliffs, the New bridge and the famous bullring in the city centre. After the guided tour and before heading to your next destination, you will have some free time to do some shopping or having a drink whilst admiring the spectacular views.
Grazalema, a pretty town with immaculately kept cobbled streets lined with whitewashed houses, wrought iron rejas on its windows and plant pots spilling over with colourful flowers. Grazalema is the most popular base for hikes into the Parque Natural Sierra de Grazalema. It's also an age-old producer of blankets, honey, cheese, meat-filled stews and an adrenaline-filled bull-running festival, it has its own special charm.
Zahara de la Sierra, is quite simply a place that takes your breath away. It is, without a doubt, one of the most picturesque of all the Pueblos Blancos (white villages) in the Sierra de Grazalema, if not in the whole of Andalucia. The town enjoys an extraordinary setting, sitting at the foot of the Sierra del Jaral, perched on top of a hill and surrounded by theturquoise waters of the Zahara-el Gastor reservoir. Standing guard above the village are the remains of a Moorish castle that command views over the surrounding countryside and the white-washed village beneath.
Ronda is a mountaintop city that sits in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda. Set dramatically above a deep gorge and surrounded by lush river valleys, it is a place that is breath-taking. The gorge, El Tajo, separates the city’s 15th-century new town from its Moorish old town. Puente Nuevo, a stone bridge spanning the gorge, has a lookout offering stunning views and the new town’s Plaza de Toros, a legendary 18th-century bullring, is one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks.
Once your stay in Ronda is concluded, you will be transferred to Malaga city centre where you will check-in at the hotel and have the rest of the evening free to explore the city at your leisure. We will provide you with maps, tips, and recommendations for local bars & restaurants.
