Most Scenic Routes from Granada to Seville via Ronda
Hi everyone,
I will be driving between Granada & Seville & staying overnight in Ronda in September during my visit to Spain and would like to hear which routes or side trips you would regard as the most scenic (Sierra de Grazalema looks beautiful - is there one particular route thru the Parque Natural that stands out more than another)
Thanks for any advice you can offer

Rosalini: We are making that drive on our trip this month! We plan to stop in Antequera and the surrounding region on the way to Ronda, and plan to see Grazalema and Zahara on the way to Seville, possibly (hopefully!) with a stop at Pileta Cave. If you click on my name there is a lot of discussion about this leg of our trip in my post. I'd be interested in hearing what anyone has to say here as well.

Probably the most scenic is to drop down to the coast hwy but that would add hours to your drive. Malaga to Motril to Granada is entertaining.

We did this drive just about 2 weeks ago, including the stop in Antequera. After Antequera, we took the main road to Ronda, which became quite scenic. The next day we drove to Grazalema, then on to Zahara, and finally to Sevilla. The drive from Ronda to Grazalema was beautiful, and that from Grazalema to Zahara was stunning (at least for the passenger! The driver needs to pay a lot of attention to the twisty road). If we'd had more time in the area (and I wish we had!), we'd have explored more of the park, which I'm sure is incredible.

Thanks everyone for your replies. Will definitely be driving between Grazalema & Zahara.
