Ubrique White Villiage, Spain

Ubrique is a picturesque pueblo blanco (white town) in the Serrania de Ronda Mountains of Cadiz province. Spectacularly situated in front of the crag of the Cruz de Tajo, the town follows the valley of the Rio Ubrique. This beautiful and tranquil town has a long, interesting history which stretches back over many epochs and empires. For over a century, Ubrique has been world-renowned for its leather industry supplying the likes of Loewe, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
Today, the town’s national fame also comes from its most celebrated persona, the flamboyant retired bullfighter, Jesulín de Ubrique. His finca, Ambiciones, can be seen from the A373, on the left heading south from Prado del Rey towards El Bosque. Jesulin remains the town’s favourite son.

Attractions in Ubrique include the bullring, appropriately enough in Avenida de Jesulin de Ubrique; there’s also a bullfighting museum, Museo Taurino Jesulin de Ubrique, and a peña cultural named after the bullfighter. Also of interest are the Baroque Public Fountain and the Al-Andalus fountain of Los Nueve Caños (Fountain of Nine Pipes).

The town in situated where the Natural Parks of Grazalema and Los Alcornocales Natural Park meet, so you can enjoy superb hiking in the surrounding area. Nearby is the Roman site of Ocuri, a rare example of an archaeological columbarium (a place for storing funerary urns). Also close to the town is the Castillo de Fatima, the remains of a Moorish castle. Most restaurants and cafes are located on and around the main drag, Avenida Dr Solis Pascual.
