Where

Arcos de la Frontera White Village

The gateway to the Route of the Pueblos Blancos, this beautiful village has been declared a national historic site. Influenced by Moorish architecture, the charming whitewashed houses are arranged in a semicircle on a cliff top above the Río Guadalete. Arcos de la Frontera has several fortified mansions and two exquisite churches. On the Calle Deán Espinosa, the Basilica of Santa María de la Ascension blends a variety of architectural styles. Built in the 15th to 16th centuries, the church reveals the transition from Gothic to Renaissance and incorporates Mudéjar as well as Baroque details. The Church of San Pedro, dramatically standing above a steep limestone cliff, is decorated with noteworthy paintings. Arcos de la Frontera is also known for its traditional Easter festival and its regional cuisine. For a pampering accomodation experience, stay at the luxurious Parador de Arcos de la Frontera housed in an elegant building overlooking the town and the Guadalete River.
