Arcos de la Frontera


This village is the entrance to the White Villages Route and half the village is an improbable looking vertically slashed rock high above the River Guadalete. Modern day Arcos is a true centre of tourist interest one of the most beautiful towns in Spain for its rives, its olive and orange trees and fertile orchards where herds of bullfighting stock and beautiful horses roam.

It is beautiful also for the impressive Tajo canyon and for the regal façades of its baroque and Renaissance houses. Its streets are narrow and there are arches in abundance, sometimes serving ad the exterior arches of the parish churches, of which the church of San Pedro and Santa María is the most outstanding. Holy week is another integral part of Arcos. It is with reason that it has been declared of National Tourist Interest, involving as it does an unsurpassed reproduction of the Passion and Death of Christ in the steep, narrow and winding streets of the village where the processional stages barely fit in. At nearby La Molinera Lake you can practice such diverse sports as hang-gliding and horseback riding or all sorts of water sports. To get to know this jewel of Andalusia plan a guided tour in the Tourism Office.
