Grazalema

"Grazalema was called by the Arabs Ben-Mahoma which means children of Mahoma. The Islamic influence can be seen in the layout of the streets and the constant presence of water. It is situated in a stunning location, in the heart of the mountains (La Sierra de Grazalema) which are named the same, it is a must-see if you come to Cadiz. "

Although there are traces of prehistoric settlements, such as the Dolmen of la Giganta, the origin of Grazalema coincides with the Roman town of Lacilbula.

In its urban area, declared of historic value, typical popular architecture merges perfectly with the monumental wealth. The patrimonial jewel of the village is the Baroque church of Nuestra Señora de la Aurora, next to San José`s Church, the parish of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación , the Church of San Juan and the Calvario and los Ángeles Hermitages.
The town is famous for their traditional blankets, which you can see exposed along with other crafts in the Museum of Textile Arts.
