The white villages of Andalusia are understandably famous, but what not everyone knows is how diverse they can be, as each village is centered on one particular craft or trade. On this visit we explore one of the most important wine towns in the region, Cómpeta, a whitewashed town that has become as famous for its wine festival as for the beauty of the town itself. We will also discover the unique beauty of the Cave of Treasures, home to a legendary 12th century treasure.
Some of the highlights of this tour include:
- Visit the Cueva del Tesoro (Cave of Treasure), one of just three marine caves in the world that can be visited on foot. There are Neolithic cave paintings and ceramics, and of course, the legend of its buried treasure.
- A walking tour of Cómpeta, one of the pearls of the region, including the Plaza Almijara, Plaza de la Vendimia, and the Modernista-style Panoramic Lookout.
- Optional visit to a local winery in Cómpeta.
