Zahara and the Sierra de Grazalema

A beautiful 25°C day, perfect for a 30 minute drive to the pueblo of Zahara de la Sierra for lunch.
Zahara is a typical "pueblo blanco", set in a stunning location on a rocky outcrop overlooking a reservoir.

 No lack of direction here.

Spoilt for choice by the many restaurants available, we eventually chose the "Cervecería El Gallo", happily just sitting watching the world go by.
 After a couple of delicious tapas each, we headed out of the village for a trip over the other side of the Sierra towards El Bosque and home.

Olvera just visible in the far distance, here and below. 

 We stopped for a short while to stretch our legs and enjoy the stunning scenery.
 Faithful companions as always.
Looking back to the reservoir from the winding, twisting road that climbs the mountain range.
 Views on the other side of the mountain, looking down into the valley where the pueblo of Grazalema nestles. Stunning.
