Travel Blogs from Ronda
Leaving Granada we drove through many more kilometres of olive groves to a little place called Setenil de las Bodegas. We turned off the main road, following the *****'s (GPS) instructions into an alleyway and the alleys got smaller, narrower and steeper with every turn and we couldn't turn back.
