When you are visiting Andalusia in Spain, one thing you should not miss is visiting at least one of the Pueblos Blancos - the "White Towns". When you look at the pictures it should be obvious, why they are called this way.
I've read that one of the most beautiful of these towns shall be Zahara de la Sierra and I found nothing that would make me disagree with this claim although I did not had the chance to visit all the other white towns. But its special location right at a turquoise colored, large lake and perched on the side of a mountain creates its very special charm. And the best: While all the tourists are rushing to the more well known city of Ronda, they seem to ignore this little gem.
Well take a look at your own. Here is a selection of my pictures from Zahara. You can click every picture to enlarge it.
