Zahara de la Sierra, Pueblo Blanco in the Grazalema Natural Park

Nestled under the mountain that gives the village its name, Zahara de la Sierra is one of the pueblos blancos of Cadiz province, and is only 30 minutes drive from Ronda, or an hour from Jerez de la Frontera. Completely within the Grazalema Natural Park, and with the district’s largest lake at its base, as well as the beginnings of the Garganta Verde walk just outside the village, Zahara is rightly quite central to experiencing the Sierra de Cadiz.

Arriving in the village you are immediately struck by the sight of the fortress tower sitting on a narrow plateau at the top of the mountain rocks, and the white buildings wrapped around the mountain base which makes Zahara a popular village to photograph from afar with some of the best views being at the southern end of the lake on a clear blue sky day.

Things to do in Ronda

by @marine_sld

As well as being a pueblo blanco (white town) that you just have to visit in Andalusia, Ronda also has the advantage of being close to a mountain of unmissable sights in the region. You can visit great cities like Granada, or smaller and more atypical places like the town of Pitufos. There’s a load of options to choose from! Here’s a list of places that I got to visit during my stay in Ronda…

 First, I landed in Malaga, the capital of the province with the same name. It’s a pretty seaside city, but a little deceptive in comparison to what I was expecting.

With the suffocating heat of Andalusia, swimming is a vital necessity. Unfortunately, the only downside of Ronda is that it’s not by the sea — however, Malaga and Marbella are very close. I didn’t have the courage to visit beaches probably full of people and therefore I preferred to find a more peaceful location: La Cueva Del Gato (The Cat’s Cave), a cave location in the mountain. Since it comes from the…

A Cultural Immersive Centre in Ronda.

There are three types of tourism moved by three experts who originally had the idea to create a place that brings together people with different origins and personalities. The result of this tourism project is now called Entrelenguas.

The centre organises cultural events on a continuous basis throughout the year and covers a wide range of topics ranging from the organisation of concerts and festivals to the organisation of Pop-ups with the most cosmopolitan rhythm. Orange Tourism in Ronda has its own name and that is Entrelenguas. There is no better plan for tonight! A cultural centre where you can dance and feel what it is to be a local in Ronda.

Learning Spanish is the base for Idiomatic Tourism that the centre offers. Yes, with a learning idea that will bring you back to school. Pencil, paper and hands on the work! Classes with people who want to learn Spanish in a relaxed way. Entrelenguas is the perfect place to come to together with the community and to learn Spanish in…

Volunteering in Ronda: the best way to learn Spanish!

Hi! We want to introduce you to Hannah.

Hannah is 18 years old and from Canada. She is currently on her gap year as a University student and so she and her friend decided to do a tour through Europe and of course to stop in our beautiful town Ronda. She is doing the volunteering program with us and today we interviewed her to find out more about her opinion on what it is like to live and work in Spain.

We were curious as to why she decided to volunteer and why here in Ronda. Before she starts travelling, she wanted to do something meaningful. She wanted to stay in a smaller city where she could experience the local culture and the real Spain! She said that volunteering was an added bonus, as it allowed her to do something positive for the community.

Hannah volunteers at a nursery here in Ronda, with kids between the ages of 0-3 years. Volunteering in a nursery school is one of the programs we offer here at Entrelenguas. The students work in the morning and in the afternoon they…
