Caves Tour We first visit the hilltop ruins of the Roman city of Acinipo, with a short walk around the site and up to the amphitheatre. Stand on the stage and hear how your voice carries easily to the back row of the seats. We continue our drive to the Pileta Cave, to see stalactites, strange rock formations and prehistoric paintings, dating back 25,000 years. Drive on to the 'Cat Cave' to see the cat-shaped cavemouth and its pretty waterfall which cascades into a crystal-clear water pool. The water from inside the cave is freezing cold - dip your toes in if you dare!
White Villages Tour From Ronda we drive up into the mountains to the white village of Grazalema, nestled into the craggy limestone rocks. Take a walk around the village, where they still hold annual bull runs and see the giant statue of a bull. We then drive even higher up a twisting mountain road to Las Palomas Pass, a gap through the mountain ranges. Look out for ibex amongst the trees and vultures flying in the skies overhead. Then we drive down the other side of the mountains to the village of Zahara, overlooking a beautiful blue lake. Climb up to the Arab fortress on the top of the hill.
