COAST OF TRAFALGAR & SIERRA OF GRAZALEMA
The impressive coastal cliffs bring the Mediterranean countryside to an abrupt and spectacular end. The Tajo Tower is a strategic vantage point from which Christians guarded the coast against the threat of Berber pirates. Sail or kayak along the base of a cliff of more than 100 metres where Peregrine Falcons nest, visit the most Mozarabic city in Europe, explore the La Janda lagoon, enjoy a sunset at Trafalgar lighthouse, dine on the beach or visit the tuna factory and Castilnovo tower of Conil; These are just some of the experiences we feel you must enjoy here! This area offers some of the most original and special accommodation you can find: Visit the largest dove cote in Europe (c. XVII), houses at the foot of Trafalgar Lighthouse or bubble-rooms in Zahora, surrounded by forest and ideal for enjoying the local music, a way of blending the region’s wildlife and art forms.
The Sierra de Grazalema has the highest register of rainfall in Europe. It is the domain of the Bonelli’s Eagle, Rock Bunting, Bonelli’s Warbler, Alpine Accentor and the Black Wheatear. The region is a protected biosphere and is scattered with charming White Villages and valuable archeological ruins perched in the mountains.
