How to enjoy the beautiful walks of Cadiz in Spain

The Path of Jesus, Rutas Serranas province of Cadiz.

The area of Cadiz in Southern Spain is blessed with natural beauty. Since first publishing this article I got the opportunity to visit a friend in Ubrique in Cadiz.  The Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park was on our itinerary and it didn’t disappoint.  It is a natural park in the northeastern part of the province of Cádiz . The park encompasses, within its 51,695 hectares (127,740 acres), a complex of mountain ranges, known collectively as the Sierra de Grazalema, which, in turn, are part of the Cordillera Subbética. Other ranges within the park, comprising the Sierra de Grazalema, include the Sierra de Zafalgar, the Sierra del Pinar, and the Sierra de Endrinal. Pinar (or Torreón), 1654 metres in elevation, is the tallest peak.  The local authorities and planning agency are focusing on developing Spain s holiday rental market.

The old building are well maintained and decorated. The tourist has a number of accommodation options to chose.  Small hostels which are hotels to numerous Cadiz holiday rentals  and the magnificent mountain local villa to rent in Andalusia.

The Sierra de Grazalema, a karstic region, contains a number of large limestone caverns, including the Cueva del Gato, the Cueva de la Pileta and the Garganta Verde. The Sierra de Grazalema is also home to many colonies of vultures, including a few pairs of Egyptian vultures, a species which is seriously threatened. The natural park was declared a biosphere reserve in 1977.

All or part of nine municipalities of the province of Cadiz lie within the Natural Park of Grazalema: Algodonales, Benaocaz, El Bosque, El Gastor, Grazalema, Prado del Rey, Ubrique, Villaluenga del Rosario, and Zahara de la Sierra. Likewise, there are five towns in Malaga province that have land within park boundaries: Benaoján, Cortes de la Frontera, Jimera de Líbar, Montejaque, and Ronda. This area has within it unrivaled walking routes along the the way you can rent apartments villas and cottages – You can hire local guides to show you the way they know every inch of this area and can offer you an authentic ‘Grazalema’ experience.
