Cueva de la Pileta

Limestone caves with interesting formations. Leaving Ronda from the North, follow the signs for Seville. You will soon join C339, which crosses the River Guadiaro. After 12 km take a minor road, MA 501, which branches off to the left, signposted Benoajan. This road winds through another narrow gorge, with views of an man-made lake. Soon the road has views of the Guadiarro River Valley, and passes by the village of Benoajan. After a few kilometres, the road branches to the right for La Cueva de la Pileta.


The Serranía de Ronda (The mountains of Ronda) are studded with charming pueblos blancos (white villages) that can be visited by car in a number of delightful day trips.
