    Great day on 15 August; arrival at the cueva del Gato place beautiful but crowded world, 15, fatal error! For the rest of the Ronda beautiful city! The area around and including the sierra de las nuves deserve to be known! I recommend doing it in the spring to enjoy hiking and avoid the 40 degrees.

    impressive is the contrast of views you get has see in the mountainous area, since the source of a river, fir forests, dams, natural, see fauna of the mountains running beside you so full of trails and paths ideal for people wanting to nature...

    Back from your trip to Ronda: take the road (by car for us) between Ronda and El borgos, it is really beautiful, 20km in a landscape of real beauty and atypical. Definitely beautiful hikes in the corner.
