Driving on Andalucia Highway A-372
A-372 is one of the main roads going from Ronda to Arcos de le Frontera. This roadway, like so many others in Spain, has so much scenery it is hard not to stop every 5 minutes to soak in the views.
The landscape in this part of southern Spain is varied. Expect to see everything from vast plains to tall mountains during the 1 hour 30 minute drive from Ronda to Arcos de la Frontera.
Life goes at a slow pace in this stretch of Andalucia roadway. Sleepy little farm houses dot the A-372 countryside. Passing a tractor or two is to be expected.
The only thing fast around here is a Mercedes rapidly approaching in the rear-view mirror.
The highway signs read “Junta de Andalucia”, meaning “Government of Andalucia”. Learn more about the agency on the official government of Andalucia website.
One of the scenic places to stop on A-372 is the cozy village of Grazalema, Spain. Near Ronda, Spain, Grazalema is an old peublos blancos village giving off the feeling of not having changed for hundreds of years. With a population of just over 2,000, this is not a big place and tourism is minimal for those seeking a destination away from the crowds.
