The mountains and hills of the Sierra de Grazalema National Park are visible from the hair-raising balconies of the Alameda del Tajo.This vast protected area is less than half an hour by car from Ronda and offers some fantastic trekking and mountain biking trails. Some of the canyons in the Grazalema are 400 metres (1,312 feet) high – the equivalent of four El Tajo‘s stacked on top of one another.

Sierra de las Nieves National Park

Ronda is sandwiched between two beautiful national parks: to the east is the Sierra de Grazalema, while 20km (12 miles) to the west is the smaller but equally impressive Sierra de las Nieves. The untamed landscape here is home to three awesome cave formations and one of the deepest potholes in Europe, with a depth of 1,098 metres (3,602 feet). Best explored on foot, by bike or by horseback (ask at Ronda’s Tourist Office for details of routes and tours).
