The Beautiful White Village of Olvera, Spain

Olvera is a small village located in the heart of the Cadiz mountains, Spain. The village’s main monument is the city itself, with its whitewashed houses, steep narrow streets all running up towards the impressive silhouette of its church and castle at the top of the hill.

The hills surrounding Olvera are full of olive tree plantations that provide the best extraction of olive oils in Andalusia. It’s believed that the name of the town is related to the amount of olive trees in the area.

Photoblogger dimoxod has an excellent set of pictures of this little place. Some of them are reproduced here.

  2. Many decent bars if traditional Spanish bars serving Tapas is what you're after. I have a house in the town that is available to rent.
