From small fishing villages located on the coast, still employing techniques that originated thousands of years ago, to the famous sun baked white villages perched on rocky buttresses in the mountainous hinterland. The suffix ‘de la Frontera’ indicates the town or village was, sometime between the arrival of the Moors in 704AD and their eventual demise in 1492, on the ever fluctuating boundary between Moorish and Christian territory. Most towns and villages have their own local ethnographical and history and archaeological museums, all worth a visit. Many of the towns still retain defensive walls that contain a way of life unchanged for hundreds of years. You will find that each makes its own contribution to the culture and culinary repertoire of the provinces.
