Our travel guide to Grazalema

In the heart of the Sierra de Grazalema we find one of the most beautiful white villages in the province. Its Arab past influences every alley. This, together with the impressive nature that surrounds it, have made Grazalema one of the greatest jewels of the sierra de Cádiz. Thanks to this Travel Guide to Grazalema you can find all the activities and the best travel tips for your trip.

In the heart of the Sierra de Grazalema, this quaint white town of Cádiz enjoys a special microclimate (it has the highest rainfall rate on the Iberian peninsula).

Although there are traces of prehistoric settlements in the area, such as the Dolmen de la Giganta, the origin of Grazalema coincides with the Roman city of Lacílbula.

In its urban centre, declared a Historic Site, the typical popular architecture blends perfectly with monumental wealth. The patrimonial jewel of the town is the Baroque Church of Nuestra Señora de la Aurora. It is also worth visiting the Church of San José, the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación, the Church of San Juan and the hermitages of El Calvario and los Ángeles.

Famous for its traditional blankets, these are exhibited alongside other crafts in the Museum of Textile Crafts.
