A nice day trip passes over the small mountain roads through the white villages to Ronda the historic town divided in two parts by the Tajo. A visit in the narrow alleys with all the typical shops of ceramics and leather things can be topped with a tapas meal in one of the small restaurants. Later the street brings you down to the coast. Nearby Marbella you find the biggest and luxurious sail hunt port of the Mediterranean: restaurants, bars and all kind of shops are opened during near the whole night in summer.
Directly behind the tourism coast you can find typical small villages with the church and its church square as meeting point for everybody in the centre. Old traditions and handworks get cultivated and small bars offer all kind of plain fare.
Jerez is the stronghold of the Spanish horses. The Real Spanish Riding School shows their white horses in the show “asi bailan los caballos andaluzes” . But you also can visit the morning training and the historic buildings with the stables, the museum of the carriages and the own saddlers.
In the centre of Jerez you find the military deposit of the PRE stallions. During the season the stallions are shared in all towns of Andalusia but in autumn and winter you can visit them here.
Nearby Jerez the famous stud Yeguada la Cartuja opens its doors for visitors. Every Saturday they show their mares, youngsters and well trained working horses as all kind of carriages in a beautiful show.
But Jerez is also famous because of all the old bodegas with the different sherry ( the name comes from “Jerez”). You can get a guided tour in different languages and try all kind of sherry.
Tarifa is not just the southern point of the European continent but also the most popular wind surfing area because of the Levante, the wind coming from Africa. From here ferries leave to Ceuta and Melilla. Dolphins are living in the deep water of the “Street of Gibraltar” you can visit by guided tours.
Near Estepona you can cross the big wildlife park Selvo by jeep and get near to a lot of wild animals.
Each town has its own patroness they honour with a great festival ones a year – the feria. Most of these ferias start with a romeria – a procession with horses and go in the centre with lots of dances in traditional costumes, sherry and meals. Each festival has its own customs and some of them continue up to one week. To visit them
is a real experience.
The possibilities are unlimited – just think about that you can have a sun bath at the sandy beach in spring time – just 2 hours away in one direction you can go skiing in the Sierra Nevada and about 2 hours in the other direction you can go windsurfing at Tarifa.
