FOR THE PHOTOGRAPHY LOVER
White Villages (Olvera)
Andalusia is famous for their picturesque white villages sprawling over the region. One of the most well known is Olvera. Located east of the Betic mountains among fields and olive trees, the town is one of the area's most important and dates back to Nazari times, having grown at the foot of a 12th-century Moslem fortress.
FOR THE EXPLORER
Surrounded by lush river valleys and sitting above a deep ravine, Ronda is a place that literally takes your breath away when seeing it. It is said to be the home of modern day bullfighting, and the Real Maestranza bullring is one of the oldest and most picturesque in Spain. But, the must see landmark is the Puente Nuevo, offering unforgettable views over the El Tajo gorge. The bridge connects the old Moorish town and the newer, El Mercadillo parts of the city.
