This attractive entry to Andalucia’s restaurant scene sits in the station at Arriate, a small town near Ronda. This restaurant is now owned and managed by Frank Röttgering and the chef is Isa Molinillo Garcia. Frank has created a warm and intimate atmosphere in the former railway goods shed. The delicious, healthy and varied dishes that are served are more than reasonably priced. Here you can choose from an extended menu. Or you let Frank make his recommendations. A simple Russian salad or one filled with a cornucopia of delectable tastes? A choice of meat, fish or vegetarian… but always using excellent quality fresh, local produce. In the summer dine ‘al fresco’ by sitting out on the terrace whilst enjoying the spectacular views over the valley towards the mountains of the Sierra de Grazelama. Here you can sample our homemade dishes by the platform as the driver of the last train for the day gives you a friendly wave. In winter snuggle up by the open fire whilst sipping a hot cup of coffee accompanied by a slice of homemade cake. Recover in the afternoon with a local casserole after a long hike through the surrounding countryside… and in the evening […]
The restaurant is run by a cooperative of young people who believe in the future of the area. They opened to the public in autumn 2002. It is 19 Km. from Ronda on the A-369 to Algeciras in Atajate (Malaga), and the building is very visible at the entrance of the village. The name, “Audalazar” is one of the tributary streams of the Genal river, which is between Atajate and Alpandeire, but is also a Moorish village that disappeared in 1570, and comes from the Arabic Wadi-al-jara, Guidazara, Vidazara, Udazara, whose meaning was “river stones”.
The Guardia Civil is the oldest law enforcement agency in Spain. It is organised as a military force charged with police duties under the authority of both the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Defence. As part of its daily duties, the Guardia Civil patrols rural areas (including highways and ports) and investigates crimes there, whilst the Policía Nacional deals with safety at urban situations. Many towns and cities also have a Policía Local. The three forces are nationally coordinated by the Ministry of the Interior. The Guardia Civil is usually stationed at casas cuartel, which are both minor residential garrisons and fully equipped police stations.

Hotel Molino Cuatro Paradas is a charmingly restored flour mill located just outside the popular village of Benaojan on the banks of the river Guadiaro near Ronda, Malaga, Spain. It has recently been converted into a comfortable country hotel with a variety of accommodation options. This rural hotel is the perfect location to explore the mountains and white villages of the Serrania de Ronda and enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife in the adjacent national parks of Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves. Whether you are a walker, bird-watcher, caver or simply wish to explore the area by car, you will be entranced by the beauty and variety of the mountain scenery. Between the craggy ridges of the Sierras de Libar and Grazelema and the more rounded slopes of the Sierra de las Nieves lie the steep valleys of the rivers Genal and Guadiaro. With the added attraction of the pueblos blancos (white villages) which provide beautiful settings, historic interest and a source of needed refreshment, the area offers a remarkable wealth and variety of experience to visitors of all types.

Crystal-clear and exceptionally cold water rushes out of the mountainside and into a natural lagoon. A fantastic spot for a picnic and/or to cool off after a morning’s sightseeing in the Serrania Ronda. Take the road from Ronda to Benaoján and look for a parking area on the right. There’s a small sign for the hotel/restaurant Cueva del Gato to help you locate it. Park at the top and walk down the concrete road to the hotel. Cross the wooden footbridge (in need of repair) over the river, and then under the railway bridge. If you head up to the mouth of the cave be careful – the stone steps can be slippery and there is no handrail. It is forbidden to venture into the cave.
