If you are planning a trip to Spain and the famous Andalucían cities of Granada or Seville, why not extend your Southern Spain itinerary to include one of Spain’s most scenic driving routes – Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos (the Route of the White Villages).

To do justice to the entire 19 Pueblos Blancos and the larger city of Ronda, no less than a week to visit, explore and most of all, enjoy them all would be ideal.

Visiting The White Villages

Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos. 3 Day White Villages Itinerary


Seville is the vibrant capital of Andalucía and the birthplace of Flamenco. Starting and finishing a 3-day Andalucían itinerary from Seville is one of the best ways to experience the best of Southern Spain.

Arcos de la Frontera

Declared a historical monument, it is one of the most beautiful villages in Southern Spain. A flood of Moorish influenced white houses spill down the edge of the rocky limestone cliff tracing the line of Río Guadalete.

Zahara de la Sierra

Only 53 km from Arcos de la Frontera, the delightful village of Zahara de la Sierra sits at the base of the steep hillside beneath the remains of a Moorish castle.


Grazalema is a high mountain village nestled in a valley surrounded by the Parque Natural de Sierra de Grazalema in the northeast of the Cádiz province.


Ronda Everything about Ronda seems dramatic. From the dizzying heights at which the small city sits – on the edge of a cliff, to the Puente Nuevo, which straddles the 98-metre deep ravine of the El Tajo Gorge.

The bullring, the largest sand circle in the world, is home to the Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda. With a heritage going back to 1485, it is Spain’s oldest and most noble order of horsemanship.
