The white towns: Cadiz y Malaga
Popular Arquitecture in Andalucía

Situated in an arc that goes from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, in a defined territory in the system of Andalucian foothills -Sierras de Cadiz and Serranía de Ronda- the white towns constitute one of the arquetypical routes of the region´s popular arquitecture.

The omnipresent lime and the site that permit the dominance of space - the ridge, hillside or ravines - the ones that appear in the distance like round, white stains above a landscape abundant with pine trees, oaks, acorn trees and a rare authentic botan: the Spainish fir.

The character of the towns on the coast in the secular conflict between the Muslims and the Christians explain the insistence of the castles and the Muslim presence, united with the mountain character of these towns, mark many qualities of it´s popular arquitecture: raised, narrow, winding alleys with the entrances to houses or patios, arks that cross the narrow streets, bracing the façades. There is a predominance of covered roofs.
