Panoramic view of Grazalema in Cadiz (Andalusia)



It is the highest and most mountainous municipality in the province of Cadiz, as well as the rainiest in the Iberian Peninsula. It is located in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, and has become a tourist destination linked to the splendour of its natural surroundings. Its historic quarter has the Property of Cultural Interest designation.

It stands out for its urban structure – alleys, squares, corners and spectacular viewpoints over the mountains. Remarkably well preserved and restored, it was once the winner of the “National Tourism Award for Beautification and Improvement of the Villages of Spain”. It is one of the best examples of the so-called Andalusian White Villages.In addition to the traditional image of whitewashed houses, Grazalema has other charms such as its wide tourist offer, linked to rural and natural tourism; traditional crafts (Museum of Textile Craftwork); and buildings like the church of Nuestra Señora de la Aurora (18th century) and the parish church of La Encarnación (17th to 19th centuries).
