Good weather, better attitude. Spring seems to bring us back to life. Back to the streets. If during the winter we did unveiled you a couple of charming towns to visit in Spain. Here below we will lead you to enjoy this Spring to the most, walking around these amazing little villages of Spain.
Valle del Jerte, Cáceres.
It is impossible that you have never heard of the wonderful and singular white mantle that is formed with the cherry blossoms of the Jerte Valley.
The course of the Jerte river offers wild landscapes such as the ‘Garganta del Infierno’ with abundant waterfalls, natural pools, riverside forests, oaks, olives and spaces of high ecological value.
More than a million and a half cherry trees dyeing white throughout the valley, amazing for the sight and the spirit.
Patios de Córdoba Festivity, Córdoba.
At the beginning of May, the “Patios de Córdoba” celebration takes place.
If there is a place where they know how to decorate their patios well, this is undoubtedly the city of Córdoba. Here the traditional white houses are stained with cheerful colors. Beautiful and delicate flowers that reach their fullness in spring leaving their aroma between the walls. But, from where this celebration comes from? Due to the dry and hot environment of Cordoba, the inhabitants of the city, first the Romans and later the Muslims, adapted the typology of the popular house to their needs, centring the house around a “patio”, which normally had a fountain in the centre.
Nowadays every year this festivity is celebrated and the most spectacular patio in the city wins a prize.
It is a perfect location to have a fresh snack of Olives from Spain on a warm Spring afternoon.
Natural Park of Sierra de Grazalema, Cádiz.
