El Bosque is a small town in the Cadiz province in the south of Spain. It was founded by the Duke of Arcos in the Middle Ages under the name Los Banos del Duque, renamed for the Virgin of Guadeloupe in the 18th century. During the War of Independence, the townspeople performed admirably and as a result, Fernando VII gave it town status.

The easiest way to get to this tiny village in the foothills of the mountains is by bus or car from the Jerez Airport, which is about an hour away, near Cadiz. Gibraltar is about two hours away, but remember that involves crossing an international border. To get around town, you won’t need a car, but if you want to do any hiking, exploring or sightseeing, you will probably find it preferable to have your own transport.

There are hostels in El Bosque, but not very many. The hostels in the mountains of Spain cater more to hikers than the party-seeking backpackers, but if you’re searching for scenery than this is definitely the place to be. Hostel accommodation will be similar to other European hostels, with shared dorm rooms and facilities. The word for hostel in Spanish is “hostal,” you could always seek out a guesthouse for inexpensive accommodation as well.

El Bosque is often considered the gateway to the vast Parque Natural de la Sierra de Grazalema in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Within easy reach of the town is incredible hiking, trout fishing, and hunting. The trout farm in El Bosque is the most southern fish farm in Europe. In town, some historical sites are the Hermita del Calvario, the Church of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, and the Molino del Duque, which all date from the 18th century. If you feel like doing any wise tastings, head for nearby Jerez and its local wineries and vineyards.
