A few kilometres from Ronda, just outside the white village of Benaojan lies one of the most spectacular cave systems in Spain, Pileta Paleolithic Cave Paintings at Benaojan and in the mouth of one, several galleries of cave paintings that are as old as 30,000 years, and were created by paleolithic people of Ronda before the last great ice age. Best of all, the caves are open to the public with a local tour guide to explain the significance of the artwork.

Wildside Holidays – Spain
The top wildlife, activity and walking holiday companies in Spain. Small family companies living and working in Spain. Local guides are the best!
Within the Serrania we are lucky enough to have three natural parks, (Grazalema, Sierra de las Nieves, and Alcornocales). El Bosque Botanical Gardens in the village El Bosque is a small botanical garden called “El Castillejo” and it is devoted exclusively to the local and endemic plant species of these mountains.
Due to the Serrania being both Mediterranean and European, many of the tree species are common throughout Europe, whilst most of the shrubs are generally Mediterranean. Most of the flowers and grasses are either Mediterranean or endemic to the area.
Your stroll will take you through several mini ecosystems, each with their own viewing area to sit and appreciate the surroundings.
Where to park in Ronda Spain? Well, Ronda can sometimes be a difficult little city to drive around and find parking for the uninitiated, especially if you’ are driving a large motor home or towing a caravandon’t even think about entering the city centre!
Instead park in one of the outlying streets and then walk into the centre. There is also a very good motor home parking area on the outskirts of town (if you don’t want to leave your home on the side of the road.) Website in English here.
Most hotels have their own parking and if not at the very least a temporary parking bay so that you can unload any luggage and the staff will then direct you to the nearest parking. Ask your hotel for information on parking during your stay.
Not only a fantastic shop and “museum of collectables” but a perfect place for breakfast as well, la Casa del Jamon – Deli-Wine Tasting-Bar-Museum is located halfway between the hotel Reina Victoria and the Plaza de Merced.. (uphill from the bullring by about 600 metres)
The shop is filled to the brim with a superb display of jamon Iberico- wine -cheese and oil (Iberian hams, Iberian chunks … Etc.) There is also a cafeteria-bar where all the products on display can be sampled either sitting at the bar or at the tables amongst what can only be described a “museum of Spanish nostagia”.
Inside the fantastic shop the restaurant is small and cosy and is a place where you can have a breakfast for very good prices. Try the sandwich with local jamon, coffee and fresh orange juice for 5 euro.
Or, try a tapas in the afternoon or evening… A plate of “Cinco Bellotas” and a glass of Ribera del Duero is a fantastic treat sitting at the bar whilst watching eveybody come and go…
Surprisingly enough this is also a great place to get a small present for friends and family back home.. Tins of cured meats travel easily enough!
This place should definately be on your bucket list for Ronda. :)
