The Ronda mountain range, strategically located in the heart of Andalusia, extends over 1536 km2 and affords shelter to more than twenty white villages of the province of Málaga. As far as topography is concerned, the Serranía (range) is an enormous meseta over 700 metres above sea level, with some peaks rising to over 1500 metres. There fertile valleys shape the geography and life in this region: Guadalteba, Guadiaro and Genal.
Because of its vast wealth and diversity, a large part of its territory is protected. The Sierra de la Nieves, Los Alcornocales and Grazalema National Parks are the largest ones. Priceless ecological treasures, like the Blue Spanish Fir, the Golden Eagle and Tawny Vulture still survive here.
The Serranía also has an inestimable historical and cultural legacy. A vast cultural heritage including primitive caves, castles, belltowers, palaces, Moorish baths and roman theatres.
