Grazalema´s mountains calcareous massif are not too high. They are located between the counties of Cádiz and Málaga. It presents a varied mountainous geography with an attractiive blend of cliffs and dense oak groves, cork oak and even Spanish Fir forest which easily grows because this is one of the areas with the highest instance of rainfall in the whole Iberian Peninsula.
Grazalema is very important because of the cliff raptors population: Egyptian Vulture, Golden Eagle, Bonelli’s Eagle, Peregrine Falcon and Griffon Vulture (here one of the biggest colonies in Europe can be found).
It is also an excellent place for scrubland birds and Mediterranean forest birds such the Iberian Chiffchaff and some Sylvia Warblers species.
We can also view mountain birds like the Red-billed Cough, Black Wheatear, Rufous-tailed Rock Trush or Alpine Accentor.
The mountain pass offers good places to observe the soaring birds during their migration.
We will travel the local roads in search of the most interesting places at every time of the year. If you want, we can combine driving with short walks.
