Jerez da la Frontera - the largest city in Cadiz Province. Not an obvious tourist destination in Spain, but the city has interesting architecture (spectacular Cathedral of San Salvador), is the home of the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art (a riding school comparable to the famous Spanish Riding School of Vienna), and has a reputation as the world capital of flamenco and sherry wine. It's definitely worth a visit, especially when the jacaranda trees are in bloom.



Punta Paloma Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we've been to, definitely the best in Europe (in our opinion). It is located on the atlantic coast of southern Spain, near Tarifa. The area around Tarifa is hugely popular for wind sports, so if you're ever looking for lessons in kite surfing, this is a fantastic place to go. 



Finally, the first short sight-seeing trip of 2021. We went to Arcos de la Frontera, also known as the gateway to the Route of the Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) of Andalusia.

This beautiful hilltop village has been declared a National Historic Monument. Characteristic of Moorish architecture, the bright whitewashed houses are simple and cubic in form. The village's buildings are arranged in a semicircle on a hillside at the edge of a cliff above the Río Guadalete. The hillside is dominated by impressive Moorish fortress and several interesting churches.



As you all know, we are living in very strange times. For the first two months of this year, we weren't even allowed to leave our village. Fortunately for us, although lacking a little bit in character, Alcaidesa is spectacularly located. The weather, the views, the hills, the beach, the sea... to die for. Not a bad place to get stuck for a while, hahaha...
