We drove through the scary mountain roads in Spain (the sheer drops seemed to fall forever until the trees at the bottom were as small as ants) to reach the white towns of Casares (pictured here) and eventually Ronda. These places are just so beautiful that I didn't want to leave. We walked through the twisting, narrow alleys which opened out onto beautiful squares. There were eagles soaring over the Moorish castle you can see on the top of the hill and lesser kestrels nesting in the tower. The contrast between these truely Spanish towns and the purpose built resorts on the coast is huge. Many people don't venture inland and miss out on these gems but maybe that's why they're still so beautiful.
