We didn’t have too much time to visit other white villages but Arcos was really great to walk, the narrow streets and white walled buildings yielding dramatic vistas and unexpected renaissance palace entrances and characteristic churches.
This was our first white village driving from Seville to Ronda. Definitely follow previous advice about parking at bottom end of town and walking up to the sights. The streets are very narrow and it is better to walk. We loved the views from near...More
First time to visit one of the white villages. We travelled up from Tarifa by car stopping just before Arcos to do a walk Ponta de las Paloma. Very winding roads needing full concentration. Arcos was stunning. Our accommodation in Hotel el Convento was perched...More
The situation of Arcos is more precipitous and stunning than most of the 'White Towns', which is saying something if you know them. Perched on the edge of a sheer cliff the Plaza del Cabildo offers stunning views almost to the coast. The centre is...More
This was one of the best hill towns and we visited many. Use the parking garage at the base and take the small bus up. It only comes hourly or walk up. Tourist information is towards the top. get off the bus at the parador...More
Lovely town, people, and food. Is there a lot to do, no but to enjoy life. We had a great dinner, wonderful walks through the old town and beautiful churches. Friendly people and a gorgeous vista view point at the top of the old town...More
If you ever do a road trip in Spain like I did for three weeks, you cannot miss this place. It’s a beautiful town that you can spend an hour or so just walking around the town where everyone seems to know everyone. Do not...More
Such a gorgeous looking village presented our most challenging driving experience! DO NOT try to drive to any sites in the old city! Truly SCARY! There is absolutely nowhere to park in the old town and we barely made it through the town without an...More
This is a nice place to visit for a few hours. You can drive to the top but parking place is limited. The streets are very narrow. But it is possible with a small car. Or you can park at the bottom and walk up...More

Hello Neiha B, we visited Argos last Feb and I must say that the best way to see Arcos and other Pueblos Blancos (white villages) is probably like we did by renting a car in Seville. Don't get too big of a car though (we had a compact SUV Opel Mokka and it was just the right size... because when you arrive in the centers of these Pueblos, the streets are very narrow... a Fiat 500 is probably the best ;-) Then depending on the hotels/inns you are staying at many of them offer your parking tickets. So you just check in and then they give you either a stamped ticket or receipt to show at the dedicated parking lot they will recommend you. Our itinerary included Jerez, Cadiz, Vejer, Arcos, El Bosque, Grazalema, Ronda (a must), Zahara, and back to Seville to drop the car. Enjoy the beautiful Andalusian countryside.
