Long regarded as one of the prettiest white villages in Andalucia Grazalema is situated just outside our province in Cadiz province. Ronda is quite close by and the Serriana de Ronda provides stunning scenery as we make our way to the village.
These images have come from googling Grazalema on the net and are part of a collection of 168 (but they include some odd ones, Mariano Rajoy anyone?)

During the days of Al Andalus Berbers from the Atlas mountains came to this area and brought with them sheep farming. The legacy today is a woollen industry and a thriving cheese factory which we shall visit

                                                  Looks rather nice

Needless to say that the surrounding scenery is stunning so do bring your cameras ( and let me have some pictures for this blog). Pride of joy must go to a local treasure. This is the last area in Spain where you can see the Pinsapo pine.

For those who are townies and only a delightful square with bars and restaurants (and maybe an eighteenth century church) will do how about the main square in Grazalema
