Friday Feature Photo: The Whitewashed Walls of Arcos, Andalucia

Arcos, Andalusia, Spain

PhotographerZu Sanchez

Capture Date:  September 2010

Location: Arcos, Andalusia, Spain

About: One of Andalucia’s most dramatically positioned pueblos blancos (white villages), it’s precariously positioned on top of a rocky limestone ridge; its whitewashed houses and majestic stone castle walls halting abruptly as a sheer cliff face plunges down to the lush valley of the river Guadalete below. Declared a national historic-artistic monument in 1962 in recognition of its exceptional architecture and location, the old town is a tangled labyrinth of cobbled streets that lead up to a sandstone castle, the Castillo de los Arcos. As you’d expect from such a spectacular vantage point, there are exhilarating views over the town and the rolling plain below.
