GET on the road and discover some of the most scenic routes in Andalucia

• The round trip to Ronda is breathtaking, particularly if you drive home towards the sunset via Gaucin and Casares

• The coast road from Nerja to La Herradura, where the Sierra Nevada tumbles down to the sea – now with much less traffic since the motorway was finished

• The route from Zahara de la Sierra to Grazalema travels through some of the most stunning scenery in Andalucia, ending in one of its most emblematic towns

• Head inland on the sleepy single track road from Estepona, up the soaring Sierra Bermeja and then down into the villages of Jubrique and Genalguacil in the Genal Valley

• The drive along the Costa de la Luz from Zahara to Canos de Meca, via Barbate, offers wonderful umbrella pine forests and views of the famous Trafalgar lighthouse

• Cabo de Gata is one of Andalucia’s most beautiful places. But at its best the lane from El Pozo de los Frailes to Las Negras, via La Isleta, is a dream

• The vertiginous route from Granada city to Pradollano skiing resort just gets higher and higher, with scenery to die for

• Within ten minutes of taking the tiny A-6103 out of Malaga city you will be in the stunning Montes de Malaga natural park. Keep going to all the way to pretty Comares pueblo

• The oldest highway in Spain, first built by the Romans to link Sevilla and Cordoba, offers up the wonderful undiscovered gems of the Campina area, including Ecija and Carmona

• Turn off the motorway north of Antequera at Lucena and visit the stunning Subbetica region of south Cordoba, the wonderful towns of Priego de Cordoba and, eventually, Alcala la Real in south Jaen
