The most beautiful towns in southern Spain

The number of times you have considered the possibility of going on a route through southern Spain , right? There are many reasons that push us to travel there, such as the Andalusian salt shaker or the good weather that usually does, which added to the fact that there are beautiful beaches make it an ideal holiday destination.

In this article I am going to talk about the towns that in my humble opinion are the most beautiful in the south of the country. If you visit them, you will surely fall in love with them and recommend them to your friends. Shall we start with the list?

Zahara de la Sierra (Cádiz)

From its beautiful castle you can contemplate the waters of a reservoir that can boast of being a spectacle due to its privileged location. That, together with its white houses, explain why it has been declared a Historic-Artistic Site. Nor can you miss the church of Santa María de la Mesa, the walls of the medieval town or the Clock Tower. All this walking through its narrow streets and tasting delicacies such as almond and cinnamon sweets.

Alájar (Huelva)

In the middle of the Sierra de Aracena, in a place that is not easily reached, Alájar is a tourist attraction due to the beauty of its houses and its streets , which as you can guess are rather narrow. The hermitage of Our Lady of the Angels will powerfully attract your attention, although what will really catch you is the Iberian ham that is served in those parts.

Frijiliana (Malaga)

In the Axarquía there are beautiful towns, but it is probable that none of them reaches the level of Frijiliana. You have to prepare to climb slopes, but you also have to prepare your camera to photograph its streets, adorned with plants such as geraniums that draw the path of the stairs at ground level. There you will see the only cane honey factory that exists in all of Europe, which is quite an experience because you can witness how it is made in an artisanal way.

Zuheros (Córdoba)

In Córdoba we find Zuheros, which has an Arab castle and all the essence of an Andalusian town. Cobbled streets, olive trees, eighteenth-century mansions … You will not want to leave there, especially when you know that there is the Cueva de los Murcielagos , an archaeological site worth seeing live. On the other hand, you will have the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park a stone’s throw away.

Casares (Malaga)

Here we also come across a castle of Arab origin that coexists with the Church of the Incarnation . Its white houses are easy to recognize from miles away, among other things because the town is on the slopes of a hill, with a certain height and with the occasional street that is not easily traveled at 35 degrees of temperature.

Cazorla (Jaén)

It is one of the most beautiful towns in Andalusia by far. The people of Jaén know it and enjoy it by inviting us to visit the Sierra de Cazorla and to practice adventure sports. In addition, it should not be overlooked that the belt that surrounds it coincides with the source of the Guadalquivir River .

Mojácar (Almeria)

The privileged views that Mojácar offers are well worth a photography session. On a very high and steep rock you can see the sea and the mountains, a sight to behold that mixes with the white houses of the town. Its streets are narrow, the squares are a haven of peace and its two viewpoints, the Plaza Nueva and the Mirador del Castillo, two points of interest that must be marked in red.

Carmona (Seville)

We ended up in Seville, specifically in the town of Carmona. They call it the star of Europe, although in reality it is not convenient to look at the sky, but rather at its terraces. In the blink of an eye you get used to the relaxed pace of life that the people of Carmona propose, so you end up sitting down with a beer and a tapa enjoying life. Palaces, churches, convents, museums … It is one of those towns that has practically everything .
