  • The White Towns of Andalusia: Private Day Trip from Cádiz

    6. The White Towns of Andalusia: Private Day Trip from Cádiz

    The White Towns of Andalusia are a series of villages in southern Spain located mostly within the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. All of the villages are characterized by their whitewashed houses with red or brown tiled roofs. This private 8-hour tour begins with hotel pick-up in Cádiz. It is said that the houses are painted white to ward off the intense summer heat that affects the region. Historically, the darkest houses and those with poor air circulation had to be whitewashed by painters who had survived the bubonic plague. Lime mixed with water produces heat that kills microorganism. As a result, people living in villages whose houses were whitewashed escaped more diseases than those who did not. Although times have changed, the tradition is still alive and houses continued to be whitewashed as needed.

This trip was so incredibly worth it. Both my husband and I get motion sick pretty easily and were worried about the long drive, but no worry was needed. Our driver was FANTASTIC and the trip overall was as seamless as advertised. We were texted the day before our trip with confirmation of where to meet our driver (he was there early), and then once we were in the van, the rest of the day was taken care of for us. The Alhambra was stunning, and we're so glad that this trip made it easy for us to get there and back without feeling rushed, all before dinner.

Very good trip with a great guide! You will be transported in a comfortable van. A lot of relevant explanations are given and you see the beautiful white Andalusian mountain villages. In the afternoon you will go to beautiful Ronda. This trip is really worth it!
