It is said that there were humans living here since the Stone Age, it is a shame that there are not much historical sites to see.
The Ducal Castle is quite well known here, unfortunately it is a private property at the moment so we...More
Once a year the townsfolk of the village put on a live nativity through out the town. Lots of time period costumes and re-enactments that draw people from far away. Many towns in Andalusia do this but this seems to be the grand exhibition of...More
We had a great walk through this beautiful white-washed town on our way from Antequera to Cádiz area. Hilly, narrow streets, incredible views from the miradors and lively during the Sunday mid-day time we dropped in with a beer and jamon festival going on in...More
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

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.
