The White Villages nestle into the side of the southern mountain ranges surrounding Granada, Cadiz, Malaga and Seville. It’s a spectacular ride which includes over mountain passes and some stunning descents into the picturesque white villages. It’s a tour with amazing scenery – rocky mountaintops, densely wooded forests, villages perched on cliff edges, bright blue reservoirs, hairpinned roads – it's also a tour in an area with exceptionally rich birdlife, particularly raptors. It has Europe's largest population of Griffon Vultures, an amazing sight to see as your ascending the mountainside, as well as vultures it also home to owls, eagles, deer, Spanish Ibex, foxes, voles and other small mammals. The villages themselves are famous for their beautiful whitewashed houses usually huddled round a central castle, ornate churches, and some of the bigger ones also have their own Plaza del Toro; the perfect setting at the end of a day's cycling. Another pull for these villages is their amazing food; tapas, raciones, postres, vinos and cervezas!
