Set in a valley, underneath a rocky outcrop, Grazalema is a good place to base yourself if you want to explore the nearby Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, which boasts a number of different vulture species as well as the rare Spanish Ibex. It is also reputed to have the highest rainfall in Spain, although you wouldn’t guess it from the cactus plants at the town’s entrance.

Grazalema has a wonderfully shady town square with a café on one side. It is the perfect place to stop for a long leisurely lunch after exploring nearby Villauenga de la Rosario.

Arrive at the wrong time of day and this town will be firmly in the middle of a long siesta. The sun's reflection off the white walls can be blinding and the heat intense, so during this period you too may opt to go for a siesta or even better, along, leisurely lunch.
