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”.

Organic wine winery, located in the Serranía de Ronda, a privileged place in Malaga that gives rise to the best wines: Chardonnay, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Acinipo, Finca Sanguijuela and Rosado. It was the Phoenicians who introduced wine cultivation to the Northern and Western countries of the Mediterranean. In Spain the cultivation of vineyards took place between the 2nd and 1st century BC around the Mediterranean shores including all of Andalusia. Of particular significance was the Roman period around 50 BC, when Ronda and more precisely Acinipo (‘Ronda La Vieja’ – Land of Wines) experienced the golden age of wine growing and even grapes were minted on coins. Since then wine culture has been maintained with the production of different red, white and sweet wines along with spirits. The wine-growing area consisted of 112.000 ha in Málaga province, of which 13.494 ha were located in the ‘Serrania de Ronda’, before the phylloxera pest reached the area in 1878. At the end of the 20th century new techniques were introduced to viticulture, using different grape varieties to produce red, white and rose wines. This initiative was started by Friedrich Schatz in 1982, and followed by Alfonso of Hohenlohe in the 90s. […]

Fantastic bar/restaurant in the square in Montejaque. The restaurant offers a wide variety of tapas, gourmet tapas, paellas and grilled meats. They offer top quality products and a warm welcome from the staff. “We invite you to come and try us. We are sure you will come again.”
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 de 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.
