After our time in Tarifa, we hopped in our car and headed for Ronda and other white hill towns of Andalucia Spain. We didn’t take the recommended route that Google Maps would dish out because we are hardcore and were driving for the next 2 weeks with no GPS but instead a paper map. I think it was a good thing because we dodged the traffic that you encounter on the coast and especially around Marbella. We took the backroads first following A-405 past Jimena de la Frontera and then later the A-369 from Gaucin on to Ronda. There was pretty much zero traffic, and the roads were really fun to drive on since it was quite windy and hilly in spots. And of course the scenery was stunning. So here is a the view of Jimena de la Frontera.
On top of the hill you can see a medieval castle built by the Moors in about 750 A.D.
