Grazalema Natural Park

Prepare yourself to see with your own eyes one of the types of tourism in Malaga that will surprise you, as sometimes you do not expect to meet these wonders of nature. Montejaque is located at the entrance of the Grazalema Natural Park, where you can enjoy the best views worthy to an authentic postcard. Its predominant nature of limestone rocks and its composition has led throughout the ages to become a perfect place to explore, to walk through and to visit caves. Thus, it is recommended to go to the Cave of the Pool, in which we can see in person cave paintings, or marvel at the underground river that is located inside the Cave of the Cat.
