A trip through the hidden treasures of Andalusia: Ronda and the Pueblos Blancos

Let’s discover together the beauty and culinary traditions of some of the most beautiful and characteristic villages in southern Spain

If you are looking for an
authentic adventure in Spain, a trip through the Pueblos Blancos (the
“white villages”) of the Andalusian region is an experience
not to be missed. The Pueblos Blancos are characterized by white houses, narrow
winding streets, and magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.

Passing through landscapes made up of ochre-colored fields, reddish soils or patches of vegetation, completely white patches pop up in the distance, small towns perched on mountains and completely white: the Pueblos Blancos. The origin of facade whitewashing dates back to the Roman Empire in the Iberian Peninsula, although later various epidemics reinforced this “tradition,” as lime has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, as well as being a good deterrent to the extreme heat that generally befalls the region.

To plan your trip to the Pueblos Blancos, a car is what you need to get around the different villages. We recommend visiting Zahara de la Sierra, Grazalema, Setenil de las Bodegas, Ronda, Juzcar, and Arcos de la Frontera, some of the most beautiful villages in the area.
