Pueblo Blanco

‘Los Pueblos Blancos’ is the collective description given to a group of spectacularly attractive white towns and villages in the provinces of Cadiz and Malaga in Andalucia, Spain.  The best known of these is Ronda, with its famous bull ring.

Most of the pueblos blancos occupy hilltop sites and historically were frontier posts in the battles between the Moors and the Christians.  Several retain the suffix ‘de la frontera’  –  as in Arcos de la Frontera.  The Arabic influence is often apparent in the architecture and narrow winding streets.
