Beautifully set in between the lush mountains of the Southern  face of the Serrania de Ronda, with various rivers running  alongside it, it is known as a culturally, rich town, with many  artists taking residence here from as far back as the 60’s not to  mention the highest concentration of gourmet restaurants in the  area.
