The hills of Andalusia have a very diverse landscape. This beautiful area is an ideal place for a scenic drive and even for a bike ride. Boundless olive trees, spectacular gorges, rushing rivers, and flowery fields surround the "Pueblos Blancos" (white villages) in the hills.
The white villages were built around the 13th to 15th century and were originally inhabited by the Moors. Today they are owned by the local population but still breathe a typical Moorish atmosphere. The most famous “Pueblos Blancos” are Grazalema, Arcos de la Frontera, and the beautiful Ronda. The Moors built this city - one of the oldest in Spain - on a rock. Ronda is split in two by the River Guadalevín, which has created a deep gorge into the mountainous area. Bridges connect the two parts, the most famous one is the Puente Nuevo, that was built in the 18th century and from which you can make great pictures of the gorge.
