Cartajima stands 845 metres above sea level, next to the crag of the same name. Its privileged situation at the top of the Genal Valley affords the traveller spectacular panoramic views: to the south stands the Genal Valley while the peaks of the Serrania de Ronda mountain range lie to the norht.

When strolling along Cartajima"s steep, narrow streets, undisturbed by the noise of motorised traffic, where time seems to pass slowly, the traveller is charmed by the pleasant aroma of ornamental plants mixed with the smell of firewood burning in local houses, of freshly-baked bread and of the AREA"s typical dishes.
