The White Villages area is located between the provinces of Cádiz and the province of Malaga and is so named for the habit of the inhabitants to paint the houses in white and to give color to the beautiful patios with many flowers.
The sight of these white houses that seem to climb the surrounding mountains is breathtaking.

In the streets of its villages you can imagine what daily life could be like in the time of Al Ándalus. Its economy is linked to the cultivation of the olive tree and the trade in the production of leather goods.
