The most beautiful towns in... Spain
With this post we open a series of posts with the most beautiful towns in different countries. In order to give visibility to the different national associations belonging to The Most Beautiful Villages of the World composed of the most beautiful villages of Spain, Italy, Japan, France, Wallonia (Belgium), Lebanon, Russia, Saxony (Germany) and Switzerland and Lichtenstein.
We begin our journey through five of the most beautiful towns in Spain in a year in which we have traveled the territory as we have never done before due to the difficulty of traveling abroad. So, if you still have a few days of vacation, take note of these precious things to prepare a getaway.
Fornalutx is a small town located in the northwest of the island of Mallorca, in the Sierra de Tramuntana. Its charm lies in its cobbled streets, its stone houses and the hundreds of plants that adorn its alleys.
Around its church there are different streets and alleys through which you can walk enjoying its charm.
It is a small and cozy town, ideal for a one-day visit or to stay for several days enjoying its tranquility. The options for activities in the area include hiking trails, driving routes to the mountain viewpoints or a getaway to the beach of Puerto de Sóller, which is just 15 minutes away.
In the heart of the Alpujarras (the mountains of Granada) is this charming town. The stone houses (most painted white and some in the color of the original stone) house plants and geraniums in facades and recesses.
Water is the leitmotif of the town as it runs through its streets that have been specially designed to channel it. Several fountains serve as supplies for the visitor. Among them the best known is that of San Antonio, famous because whoever drinks it finds a boyfriend or girlfriend.
To the south of Pampaneira is the Costa Tropical and to the north stands the Sierra Nevada Natural Park.
In the southwest of Aragon, halfway between Teruel and Zaragoza, is Anento. With just over a hundred inhabitants, it is the perfect place to disconnect and be in contact with nature. Although on weekends it receives many visitors who walk through its streets.
One of the main activities is the Aguallueve (“Water rains”) route, a rock on which the water falls in the form of drops that make it look like rain. In winter it freezes being even more spectacular. Other points of interest are its medieval castle or the Torreón de San Cristóbal.
Frías is located less than an hour from Miranda de Ebro, next to the Montes Obarenes-San Zadornil Natural Park.
The most striking thing about Frías is its castle perched on a rock that rises above the highest part of the town. In the surroundings of the castle is the Parroquia de San Vicente Mártir of Romanesque style. At about 15 minutes walking, you will find the Ebro river. A bridge also Romanesque crosses it and, on one of its banks, you can enjoy a recreational area and a bathing area.
In addition to walking through its cobbled streets, walks along the Ebro are a beautiful activity to soak up the beauty of its surroundings.
In the west of Cantabria is Potes, a town with cobbled streets and stone houses crossed by two rivers, the Quiviesa and the Deva. It is one of the most touristic towns in Cantabria and there are many things to do and see.
The old quarter is made up of the most charming streets of the town and they form a beautiful environment to walk around. The Church of San Vicente, the Torre del Infantado or the Convent of San Raimundo are its most visited places.
Nearby you can enjoy the Fuente Dé cable car, the Monastery of Santo Toribio de Liébana or the Desfiladero de la Hermida.
With these five proposals we hope to encourage you to visit the towns of Spain, either to spend your next vacation or to get to know the rural charms.
