How to get a permission for restricted footpaths in the Sierra de Grazalema

Permission for restricted footpaths in Grazalema

There are only 4 footpaths in the Grazalema Natural park that require permission to enter. They are. El Torreon, El Pinsapar, Garganta Verde and Llano de Ravel. You can apply for a permit around one month in advance and the best way to do this is by email. The information you need to give in the email is….

  • Your name,
  • Your passport number
  • How many people going on the walk
  • What date for the walk

Email 1
