Description

This picturesque Cadiz “white town” is ensconced in the heart of the Sierra de Grazalema mountain range and enjoys a very particular microclimate (it boasts the highest rainfall index in the Iberian Peninsula). Although there are traces of prehistoric  settlements in the area, such as the Dolmen de la Giganta, Grazalema’s origins coincide with the Roman town of Lacílbula.

In the town centre, declared a Historical Site, the typical popular architecture blends perfectly with the town’s monumental treasures. The jewel in the town’s crown is the Baroque Nuestra Señora de la Aurora Church, which is accompanied by San José Church, Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación Parish Church, the San Juan Church and the Hermitages of El Calvario and  Los Ángeles. Famous for its traditional blankets, these are on display at the Museum of Textile Crafts along with other craft products.

Benamahoma

This beautiful district of Grazalema, nestled in a stunning setting, was named "Ben-Mahoma" (the children of Mohammad) by the Moors. The Islamic influence is evident in the layout of the streets and in the constant presence of water.
