The Payoyos cheeses are made with milk produced by farmers in the regions of Cadiz and Ronda, more specifically three natural parks: Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, Alcornocales Natural Park and Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park in the Sierra de Ronda, serving as a stimulus for livestock for the maintenance of the different breeds, including the Goat Payoya.
With the name of Payoyo, one of the artisan cheeses produced in the province of Cadiz is known, specifically Villaluenga del Rosario, perhaps the best known and internationally recognized, as one of the most awarded cheeses in international fairs.
Villaluenga del Rosario is the smallest town in the province of Cadiz, but has the king of cheese. Goat Payoya's cheese, the most awarded in the world, is cured between mountains to achieve its unique flavor.
