El Bosque and Benamahoma

El Bosque and Benamahoma are two picturesque villages tucked away amongst the mountains of the Sierra de Grazalema National Park. They are part of what is known as ‘Pueblos Blancos’ - a unique tourist name in Andalusia consisting of a group of towns in the provinces of Cadiz and Malaga characterised by their whitewashed facades and steep streets. Our favourite thing to do here is walk from one town to the other along the banks of the majestic Majaceite river. Thanks to the steady flow of crystal clear spring water, the land here is lush, green and fertile - as dragonflies dance in the air and fig trees sway in the breeze, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a secret tropical haven far from the tourist trail. The walk takes around an hour - winding over rocks and bridges with the soothing sound of water accompanying every step. Dotted along the way, are inviting natural bathing pools and sparkling waterfalls. There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot day (summer time temperatures in Andalusia can climb to 40 degrees!) then to plunge into the clear cool waters and emerge feeling reborn! And of course, to treat yourself at the end of the walk with a cold ‘cana’ (beer) in one of the town’s friendly tapas bars and cafes whilst marvelling at the beautiful mountain vistas.
