About the area: Arcos de la Frontera

Arcos de la Frontera is one of the largest inland hilltop white towns (Pueblos Blancos) in the Province of Cadiz. It stands proud perched on the edge of huge sand stone cliffs and its history dates right back to Neolithic times when man lived in caves. As with many of these pretty villages, Arcos evidences much unrest in its history, changing hands through the centuries including the Arabs, Romans and the Moors. This has resulted in a beautiful tapestry of cultures woven into the very fabric of its cool, character filled narrow streets and many historic buildings in and around the old city walls.

Arcos de la Frontera is most famous for its imposing Gothic Cathedral, built by Alfonso the Wise back in the late 13th century to mark his victory over the Moors and the restoration of the Christian faith within the town.
