It was the Semana Santa week in the South of Spain and the unusual 30 degrees for mid-April. The conditions were perfect to explore the beautiful white villages that are hiding in the mountains of Andalusia.
One could easily spend days touring from one white spot to another, but we were not so rich in time, so we randomly chose 6 villages for our 2 days long road trip.
Our route West of Malaga:
Stop’1 – Ronda:
Rightfully named as one of the most impressive villages of Spain. The views here are simply breathtaking. A must stop in Andalusia!
Stop’2 – Setenil de las Bodegas:
Stop’3 – Olvera
Stop’4 – Zahara de la Sierra – my personal favorite!
Stop’5 – Arcos de la Fronteta
Stop’6 – Jerez de la Frontera
East of Malaga:
Malaga in Easter got so busy, that we simply had to run away to escape crowds of people and the spike in prices. We used this excuse to explore the oriental side of the Malaga province. Only an hour drive direction East and you are in the virgin rocky beaches surrounded by mountains and green scenery.
A perfect overnight stop in the mountains – small, quite, white!
Alcantilados (Cliffs) de Maro-Cerro Gordo
Great spot to drive the serpentine roads in a search of the perfect beach. If small natural beaches, almost no people and a complete silence is your thing, this natural park is a must visit for you!
