Ronda is known as one of the pueblos blancos or ‘white villages’, as the buildings were made using the local limestone. This mountaintop city has some of the most dramatic views in all of Spain.

Don’t miss a visit to the Torre Tavira, one of Cadiz’s watchtowers, for incredible views of the city!
A Seville to Gibraltar tour includes views across to Morrocco. If you go to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar, you can even capture Spain and Morocco (separated by the Strait of Gibraltar) in the same photo. You can visit the caves of San Miguel (Saint Michael) and come face-to-face with the famous Barbary monkeys of Gibraltar!

You could just about go to Madrid or Barcelona and return on the same day. Although, you would have to use the high-speed train to Madrid and fly to Barcelona.
