See & Do
Don’t miss an outing to Los Gaitanes canyon, with its impossibly steep sides and waterfall. Equally impressive is Sierra de las Nieves – one of the few ecological holdouts in Andalusia and rich in flora and fauna. Nature is also right at the forefront in Torcal de Antequera, a natural park bursting with wildlife and plants.
Perched on the edge of a gorge, the city of Ronda is a must for scenic shots and evening strolls. Granada is also within easy reach, and the rose-walled Alhambra Palace on the banks of the Darro River retains all its Moorish allure.
Guests can book a range of de-stressing massage and beauty treatments at La Posada. Try a Japanese-style Shiatsu massage, any-which-way waxing or a pedicure.
For a steamier session, try the brand new Thermal Circuit (Turkish bath, thermal pool, massage, thermal pool) in a five-star spa close to La Posada de los Cantaros.
