These villages with white buildings are one of a kind. In some of them you can see hand made products such as large doilers, straw baskets and colorful carpets. Plenty of restaurants too. Prepare your camera!

We did a day trip to Bubion, Capileira, and Pampaneira and enjoyed this break from the city. We found a great cafe in the sun with great food and beer and just relaxed and enjoyed the view.
