Spectacular beaches and coves in Menorca, beautiful towns in Catalonia, incredible excursions in Tenerife, beautiful natural wonders throughout the territory ... As you can see, Spain has a lot to offer travelers, so it is not necessary to go to the other end of the world to visit worthwhile places.
Today, for example, we want to move to one of the autonomous communities that receives the most tourists throughout the year. Yes, we are referring to Andalusia, which in addition to offering beautiful beaches, important historical monuments and dreamy landscapes, has really beautiful towns. Today we tour some of the most beautiful. Do you want to come with us?
Arcos de la Frontera
What do you think if we start our tour of the most beautiful towns in Andalusia in the province of Cádiz? Among many other beautiful places, there is Arcos de la Frontera, a charming enclave located behind an enclosure walled. You will be amazed by the narrow and steep streets of its historic center where you will find the Castillo de los Duques (15th century), the Puerta de Matrera, palaces, chapels, stately homes and all kinds of historical jewels. We recommend that you do not miss the views from the famous viewpoint of Peña Nueva, also known as the "Balcón del Coño" (name that many other high-altitude gazes acquire).
Zahara de la Sierra
We continue in Cádiz to talk to you about Zahara de la Sierra, a beautiful town located in the heart of the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. Without a doubt, the best thing about this place is its impressive landscape, with the reservoir and its beautiful trails. In addition, here you will discover remains of an Arab castle, the Clock Tower and the Church of Santa María de la Mesa.
Priego de Córdoba
In Córdoba we find Priego de Córdoba, a mandatory stop on the Caliphate Route, a famous itinerary that goes from Córdoba to Granada. In this beautiful place you will discover style buildings baroque, Arab remains, white streets full of flowers and the sources of Health and the King, some neoclassical compositions that are worth seeing.
We moved to Malaga to see the beautiful Ronda, which is hidden in the mountains. Despite the fact that it is no longer considered a town (it has more than 30,000 inhabitants), we cannot leave this city alone. It is located on a plateau that is abruptly cut by the erosion of the Guadalevín river. Its historic center is surprising, which looks out on the abyss that offers beautiful panoramic views.
We continue in Malaga to tell you about Casares, a white town with narrow streets and whitewashed houses nestled on a green mountain. If you have the opportunity to visit the town, don't forget to see the Blas Infante house, the Plaza de España and the aqueduct bridge of los Baños. Of course, before visiting it you must take into account that it is considered by many to be a town pendant for its vertiginosity.
From Almería we want to highlight Mojácar, a typical Andalusian town with narrow streets and white houses, nestled on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean. In addition to its coastline, which is full of virgin beaches, we include it in the list for its privileged viewpoints and its beautiful squares.
Finally, we want to tell you about Jaén, a beautiful province where one of the most charming towns in Andalusia is located. The best thing, yes, are its impressive views, especially those obtained from the rock located in the Iruela castle, which is of Templar origin.
