The Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) sparkle on hilltops throughout southeast Spain’s Cadiz Sierra range. They’ll take your breath away as you view them tumbling down hillside slopes or explore their narrow streets. Luckily, the most renown village, Arcos de la Frontera, is also the most accessible.

Arcos is along a ridgeline above the impressive cliff, Peña Nueva, overlooking the winding Guadelete River and its valley. The opposite side of the ridge, Peña Vieja, overlooks Lago de Arcos. The old town center sits at the highest point, with streets of white-washed homes cascading down the ridgeline.
