GrazalemaGrazalema is a white town nestled at 2, 715 feet in the Sierra de Grazalema (6). Originally a Berber town, Grazalema is about 3 hours from Sevilla by bus and has a little more than 3,000 residents (2).

Grazalema is a picturesque haunt for artists and people in search of nature. Its steep, cobbled streets and flower boxes are beautiful, especially when dusted with snow. The town also holds a weeklong festival, Fiesta de Carmen, in July with late-night music and dance, concluding with a bull running through the streets (2).

The Sierra de Grazalema is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Rock climbers gather at the crag Peñon Grande and hikers enjoy trails that begin from the mountainside at the top of the town. This mountain region is one of the greenest in Andalucía and contains a variety of landscapes such as: river valleys, deep gorges, Mediterranean woodlands and rocky mountain tops. If you’re lucky you may even see some ibex (2).

Contact the Grazalema tourist center, which doubles as a crafts and produce salesroom, in the Plaza España at (956 13 22 25) (2).
