Grazalema National Park

A wonderland of craggy limestone mountains sheltering caves and ravines, Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park defies expectations about arid Andalucia – this is as green and lush as anywhere in the country. Walking in the park’s lower reaches is often to stroll in verdant Mediterranean woodland, among rare Spanish fir and evergreen oak, butterflies, bee-eaters and hoopoes flitting between branches. In the park’s open uplands, high above wild olives, oleander and karst outcrops, griffon vultures circle on thermals, and kestrels and eagles can be spotted. Hidden within the Sierra’s folds, the ‘white village’ of Grazalema is as welcoming and sweet as the churros con chocolat that are served up in the bars and cafes here.
