What are the 10 most beautiful villages in Andalucia?
Andalucia is a land of art, culture, traditions, sun and villages that can overwhelm the eyes of travellers – villages with unique charm, spectacular beaches, natural parks so beautiful visitors will tremble, snowy peaks and high deserts.
Against this backdrop, it would be difficult to chose which village to visit to Southern Spain, but we at the Fuerte Blog have gone the distance to choose the three most beautiful villages in Andalucia. We have chosen the ten most outstanding villages to choose from for their uniqueness, beauty and above all, charm. In this first post, we will tell you about the first five of them:
1. Nerja and Frigiliana
The eastern Costa del Sol is home to towns like Nerja, Torrox and Frigiliana. Its beaches can be enjoyed throughout the year thanks to a climate that is considered to be one of the best in Europe. Spectacular beaches, such as those found in the Maro Natural Park, combine with the typical charm of whitewashed houses and narrow streets of local villages, to make this place a paradise of sea and mountains.
2. Santiponce, Sevilla
Located just 7km outside of Sevilla, Santiponce is not to be missed. Built on the ruins of the Roman ancient city of Italica, this town was founded in the second century BC and was declared an archaeological site of interest by the Cultural and Historical Heritage Society, making it wonderful for lovers of history and culture. Its amphitheater and the Monastery of San Isidoro del Campo, were declared National Monuments in 1872.
3. Conil de la Frontera, Cádiz
When following the White Villages of Cadiz route, the picturesque town of of Conil is the perfect stop for fried fish, seafood and sherry, all while enjoying the fabulous beaches known as El Palmar.

4. Mojácar, Almería
