Alcalá de los Gazules is an extraordinary white town with Andalusian-style beauty. It is located in the interior of Cádiz and has been declared a Historic-Artistic Site.
One of the activities we propose is the Ruta del Toro. It is a livestock area where bulls and the native retinto breed are raised, which has great prestige in local cuisine. On this route you can see the natural environment of the animal and also know the tasks of a farmer responsible for the growth of the brave bull.
In addition to the well-known Ruta del Toro, in Alcalá de los Gazules you have the possibility of hiking in the largest cork oak forest mass in the world: Los Alcornocales Natural Park. This extends between the provinces of Cádiz and Málaga.
Also, this beautiful town has an extensive culinary offer. After a day of cultural and rural tourism, visitors can enjoy the most typical dishes of the Province of Cádiz. For example, retinto meat, wild boar in sauce, goat cheese and a long extension of exquisite dishes.
The most important celebrations of Alcalá de los Gazules are the Pilgrimage of Nuestra Señora de los Santos, the patron saint of the town, celebrated on August 10; and the Feast of San Jorge, celebrated on April 23 at the City Hall with the running of heifers, dances and gastronomic tastings.
