Head to Arcos de la Frontera, sitting along a ridgeline above the impressive cliff of Pena Nueva, it overlooks the winding Guadelete River and its broad valley. You’ll find the old town center at the highest point, with streets of white-washed homes cascading down the ridgeline. Traffic is restricted, making the town’s labyrinth of streets perfect for exploring on foot. As you walk, your guide will point out highlights such as Plaza Cabildo, and the golden cliffs to the north and out across the river plain. The old fort and Santa Maria church overlooks the square, along with one of Spain's state-operated historic inns, better known locally as paradors.
