Cueva de las dos Puertas (Cave of the Two Entrances) is actually not a cave, it's a natural bridge. Most likely it is the last remains of a much larger cave, but the surrounding parts have been weathered away. But it's also possible that it is just the result of different hardness of the rock and a resulting difference in weathering, which removed the material of the opening faster than the surrounding rock.

The natural bridge is located high above the mountain village Grazalema. As this is actually a hiking tour, we recommend to check your favourite hiking portal for the route. As always there are alternative routes. The shortest seems to be 7 km long, 300 m ascent, and a minimal walking time of 1.5 hours. As you might want to enjoy the natural bridge, the views, and probably a break, you should plan 2.5 h.
