which of these four towns to stop on way to Grazelama

Hello.....We will be driving from Algeciras to Grazelama today and would like to stop in two of the following four towns on our way. The options are, Jimena, Gaucin, Cortes, and Ubrique. We have seen enough churches in Spain, so we are looking more for pretty scenery and cute towns. Thanks.

Of the 4 listed I think Gaucin fits your bill.

If you want an easier drive then maybe take the route heading up to Jerez on A-381 that drives through the Los Alcornacales natural park (cork oaks) and then drive up A-389 to Arcos de la Frontera. Nice scenery and good roads. Stop for coffee and 'molletes' at Junta de los Rios where you find a nice Venta together with shop selling all kinds of things. At Arcos park in the 2 storied underground car park off Paseo de Andalucia and stretch your legs by walking up to the top and find the Parador hotel. Allow 2 hours for this stop ? Then on to El Bosque along the lovely road A-372 that gives you views of the highest point in Cadiz Province called El Torreon which you will pass on route for Grazalema. This last part passes Benamahoma nestled in the sierra - nice place for something to eat here. Fine scenery at vantage points especially at Puerto de Boyar. .

Thanks for your reply. On our way to Cadiz we stopped in Arcos for a night and enjoyed it, so I think per your suggestion we will stop in Gaucin on our way to Grazelama. Cheers.
