The white houses of Arcos will surprise you, fitted together like puzzle pieces along the top and slopes of a reddish rocky crag. In just a few minutes, you can climb from the banks of the Guadalete River up almost 200 meters to the base of the lovely Castillo de los Duques (Dukes' Castle), at a dizzying height above the river, offering amazing panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Steep cobbled streets lead to the old quarter, which has been declared a National Historic/Artistic Monument and is considered one of the loveliest in Andalusia. Also worth a visit are San Pedro Church and Santa María de la Asunción Church, both of which date from the 15th century.
This is also a rich wine-producing region. You can visit a number of wineries and vineyard, sampling exquisite vintages. Lovers of sports, particularly adventure sports, should know that the town's natural surroundings are perfect for spelunking, hiking, canyon rappelling, hang-gliding, paragliding and cycling tourism. Another excellent choice is a visit to Arcos Lake, where canoes and sailboats share the water with the birds who come to spend the winter here.
In Arcos de la Frontera you will experience the harmony of a peaceful village, where people take a seat in the shade on the hot summer afternoons, and the vitality of a one-of-a-kind tourist destination. You are sure never to forget your experience at our Parador.
