Taking a trip around the white villages of Andalusia is one of the most wonderful things you can do. These pueblos blancos are found south of Seville and east of Jerez de la Frontera. The name comes from the cluster of white houses often perched on the clifftops: a Moorish tradition which has been so for centuries. Begin your journey at Arcos de la Frontera, before heading to Zahara de la Sierra, which lies at the foot of castle ruins and continue on to Ronda, Setenil de las Bodegas and Gaucin. Gaucin offers a wonderful panorama over the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and Morocco.
