Harmony and Nat ure
to a paradise on Earth
Nature in its purest form Grazalema National Park The Sierra de Grazalema National Park is home to unique sites that have resulted in the Park being designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Our hotel is located at the heart of this natural oasis of relaxing lakes, hundred-year-old trees and shy deer. Our welcoming and modern facilities, the highest levels of guest service and a program packed with nature activities will make your stay unforgettable.
Unique views over the Guadalete Valley Hotel Fuerte Grazalema is located in privileged surroundings at the heart of the Sierra de Grazalema National Park. Furthermore, the hotel is equipped with everything needed for an unforgettable back-tonature stay: an outdoor swimming pool, heated outdoor Jacuzzi, sunbathing area, wonderful barbecue, special entertainment areas for both adults and children; additionally, the hotel is able to organise extraordinary team building events.
Cultural tourism in Grazalema Grazalema is much more than a natural oasis; it is a melting pot of cultures and traditions waiting to be discovered. The classic cultural tourism trek will take you to La Cibula, the charming ruins of a Roman villa that will transport you back to the 2nd Century. Also worth visiting is the Traditional Textile Museum, which houses antique tools used for working cloth. However, one of the greatest pleasures this white town has to offer is to lose yourself amongst the cobbled alleys that evoke memories of the 800 year Muslim occupancy of the region and that spill out onto enchanting, geranium adorned squares. 10
