Pueblos Blancos

Set within the mountain ranges, these villages offer a unique view of this picturesque area known as Pueblos Blancos. Clusters of white houses seem to climb the mountains right to the top. Deriving from the ancient custom of the inhabitants whitewashing the walls of their homes and adorning them with pots of colourful flowers they create, to the eye, a spectacle of colour, especially when combining them with the golden sun, the browns and greens of the mountains and the blue sky.

 

A visit to the Pueblos Blancos will leave you enchanted. With every step you can discover something new, look at spectacular scenery and, in all communities, admire the unique patios adorned in typical glorious Andalusian colours.
