The northeast of the province of Cádiz is an
area in Andalusia of singular charm, known today as
the Route of the White Villages.
In Andalusia whiteness is the dominant feature in these
mountain villages, isolated in the past and very welcoming
Villages and towns delight the visitor with the beauty
of their urban configuration, very often featuring unusual
designs, such as Setenil de las Bodegas, with its houses
built into the rock or Olvera, with its well-restored
Castle and wooded rocks which emerge, like green islands,
amongst the white, terraced village.
Grazalema itself, El Baroque or Zahara de la Sierra
are another stunning villages in a district where beauty
is the norm.
We should not forget the wealth of local craftwork,
from the blankets of Grazalema to the acclaimed leather
goods of Ubrique, the latter a large twon almost toatlly
dedicated to the production of leather goods and with
a wide range of fascinanting caves and fiestas.
