The Guadalete River is located in the Spanish province of Cádiz, rising in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park at an elevation of about 1,000 metres (3,300 ft), and running for 172 kilometres (107 mi) into the Bay of Cádiz at El Puerto de Santa Maria, south of the city of Cádiz. The river's name came from the Arabic phrase meaning "River of Forgetfulness".
Along the way, it flows by some of "White Villages" of Andalusia, such as Arcos de la Frontera. The "Sierra Greenway", a 36-kilometre (22 mi) bicycle path reclaimed from an abandoned railroad line, also passes along the river.
