CADIZ: CHARMING WHITE WASHED VILLAGES AND GREENWAY
Ronda, Olvera, Setenil de las Bodegas and La Sierra Greenway
La Sierra Greenway, whose route was never crossed by any train, runs for 36 km at the foot of the most southern mountains of the Iberian peninsula. The greenway runs between the towns of Puerto Serrano and Olvera.
This exceptional route, which continues parallel to the banks of numerous rivers, passes through such spectacular places like the nature reserve of Peñón de Zaframagón, where there is a large colony of grion vultures). These birds are controlled through a modern video surveillance.
The peculiarity of the white villages is its facades painted in white color, in order to maintain away the stiing heat of the Andalusian summer. In contrast to the monochrome of these villages, you can delight in the striking colors of the owers that adorn their narrow streets. This is a singular
and colorful spectacle.
The villages were built on top of the hills and they were fortied to defend the Inhabitants the enemy attacks. The essence of the White Villages will take you back to the Andalusi culture (legacy of Al-Andalus), although its history is much older.

The village is famous for its dwellings built into rock overhangs above the Rio Trejo. The town extends along the course of the Rio Trejo with some houses being built into the rock walls of the gorge itself, created by enlarging natural caves or overhangs and adding an external wall. There are special and charming spots like Calles de las Cuevas a la Sombra (Cave streets in the shade) y Calles de las Cuevas al Sol (street caves in the sun). The town has a medieval origin and where the Villa is located, originally was an Almohade settlement.
