Roadtrip through la Sierra de Cádiz

Town of Bornos, with Sierra de Cádiz in the background.

The Sierra de Cádiz is a mountain range in the eastern part of the Cádiz province in Andalucía (Southern Spain). It is part of the Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos (route of the white towns), so called because all the the towns are painted white. The picturesque route spans the north-east parts of Cádiz and north Málaga and comprises over 20 towns. The sierra spans over 130,000 acres and has numerous peaks, the highest El Torreón sits at 1600 meters high (5,400 feet), and on a clear day you can see the Strait of Gibraltar.
