ARCOS DE LA FRONTERA RURAL ACCOMMODATION
|Arcos de la Frontera
- ...of more substantial interest than Zahara de la Sierra, and a better
place to break the journey, is ARCOS DE LA FRONTERA. This was taken from
the Moors in 1264, over two centuries before Zahara fell - an impressive
feat, for it stands high above the Río Guadalete on a double crag
and must have been a wretchedly impregnable fortress. This dramatic location,
enhanced by low, white houses and fine sandstone churches, gives the town
a similar feel and appearance to Ronda - only Arcos is poorer and, quite
unjustifiably, far less visited. The streets of the town, despite particularly
manic packs of local bikers, are if anything more interesting, with their
mix of Moorish and Renaissance buildings. At the heart is the Plaza del
Cabildo, easily reached by following the signs for the parador , which
occupies one side of it. Flanking another two sides are the castle walls
and the large Gothic-Mudéjar church of Santa María de la
Asunción; the last side is left open, offering plunging views to
the river valley.
