The small village of Algar lies in the southern tip of Andalusia, some 70km from the coast. Just a few kilometres further east and you are in the mountains, but at Algar those mountains are nothing more than hills. With altitudes of around 200m the hills act as natural walls to the various artificial lakes in the area.
The most important economic activities South Andalusia are tourism and agriculture. The region is one of the largest cork producers in the world and the cork oak forests in the Los Alcornocales National Park are among the most extensive in Europe. Algar is actually not far from another national park, the Sierra de Grazalema. In the heart of the park is Ubrique, known for the FIA Challenge Hillclimb. From Algar it is only a 34km drive to the northeast.
If you drive the same distance but then to the west, you will arrive at Arcos de La Frontera. This city is build on a sharp ledge that overlooks the Guadalete river. In the 13th century it was on the border of the Christian and Muslim worlds. Like Algar, Arcos de la Frontera is part of the White Towns of Andalusia. All the buildings in these town have whitewashed walls, often with red roofs, giving them a striking almost surreal effect.
