7. Pueblos Blancos & Ronda: Private Full-Day Tour from Seville
You will depart from Seville to begin the journey, driving through the Sevillian countryside, surrounded by wheat and beautiful sunflower fields. You will stop at the 'Castle of Las Aguzaderas' - an interesting medieval building located at the old border among Catholic and Moorish kingdoms. Then, continue through the mountains stopping at Zahara de la Sierra, on the top of a steep hill. Zahara is famous for its views and history.
Here, you will have time to wander around, have a cup of coffee and visit a small olive oil factory which makes one of the best olive oils in the region. On the way to Grazalema, you will go through the Nature Park Sierra de Grazalema. You will see a range of amazing landscapes over the provinces of Cadiz, Malaga and Seville, from 'Puerto de las Palomas' which is 1157 meters above sea level. Also, you will get the chance to witness the wildlife in its natural habitat. These mountains are home to the largest colony of Griffon vultures in Spain. Once in Grazalema, there will be time to have a nice meal, surrounded by white houses and colorful flowers.
After lunch, you will leave Grazalema and head to Ronda. On the way you will cross a very beautiful Mediterranean forest full of cork trees and oaks where up to the present day, locals still work with cattle (Iberian pigs, goats and cows) and produce honey, cork, aromatic spices and wood. After an exciting morning, you will reach Ronda, one of the oldest towns in the country. Ronda is unique for its nature and history. It is built on two separate cliffs and the town is connected by a famous bridge, known as 'The New Bridge' despite the fact that it was built in the 18th century. In Ronda, you will have free time to explore the town's beauty.
