Pueblos Blancos, Andalusia

Olvera, one of the Pueblos Blancos

12/06/2018

One of Andalusia’s most famous features are the Pueblos Blancos (White Towns), a group of small towns scattered around Cadiz and Malaga, with whitewashed walls and brown tiles.

One of these white towns is Setenil de las Bodegas, located in Cadiz province, famous not only for being part of the list but also for its houses, built on the rock. The town used to be a fortified Moorish town and some houses are located right on the gorge of the town’s river.

Another great example of white villages is Frigiliana, located 70 kilometres east of Malaga. Frigiliana is well known for its sought-after architecture, especially around the old town, with white houses, cobbled streets, and plants and flowers everywhere. The most typical product from Frigiliana is cane syrup.

Zahara de la Sierra, located in Cadiz, is another beautiful example of white town. Perched on a mountain, with a spectacular view of the valley below, one of its main features is the Castle, built by the Moorish to protect the town. Its narrow streets are perfect to wander around while discovering the town.

And last, but not least, Mijas. Located 25 minutes from Malaga, Mijas is a perfect example of how a larger town can still be kept traditional. The town centre follows the traditional architecture, with whitewashed houses, narrow streets, squares with fountains… and donkeys! Mijas is famous for its donkey-taxis, originally used by people working on the fields, but it quickly became a popular way of visiting the town.
