2/ Ronda and its gorges which separate it in two

More than a village, Ronda would almost serve as a city with its 33,624 inhabitants . Unique in its kind, the Andalusian municipality located a hundred kilometers from Malaga is partly erected on a natural gorge 150 meters high , thus separating the city in two by the Guadalevin river .

Connected by bridges, Ronda offers a breathtaking panorama . One of the most impressive villages of Andalusia, to visit absolutely !

4/ El Rocío, a timeless village

Attached to the municipality of Almonte , the hamlet of El Rocío is bordered by the marshes of the Doñana National Park where it is not uncommon to see flamingos .

This sparsely populated village is also very special because of its striking resemblance to the American West of the 19th century. No paved or tarred road , only earth and sand carpet the ground of this village out of time: one would almost expect to see a team of horses tumbling at full gallop!

Highlight : the Church of the Virgen del Rocío , which attracts many pilgrims every year.
