In the rough mountains of Grazalema, one of the famous white villages in Andalucia, you can spot herds of Merino sheeps. The shepherd can only reach them by horse. He is protected for the cold early mornings by his warm, traditional poncho made of the fine wool of his sheeps. Once Grazalema was the woolcentre of Spain. Nowadays there is one craft weaver factory left where they still make the wonderfull blankets and poncho's. Style and tradition will always survive. TEXT: Margriet de Groot
