Following my visit to Malaga, I rented a car and decided to go up to Seville through the white villages up in the mountains, first visiting Ronda, and then making a quick stop in Zahara. The highlight of Zahara is the mountain top Castillo de Zahara de la Sierra with panoramic breathtaking views of the whole area from above, overlooking the little village it once protected. The hike up is good exercise, and what awaits you on the top is worth every step.


The scenic views from above…

The locals…



And the white village…





A great place to stop on the drive from Malaga to Seville through Ronda.
