    We hope village lovers can understand the many villages that are not included in this post. “Top 10 Charming Villages in Spain”:

    Cudillero – Asturiasenlace: We start in Asturias, a region full of fishing villages like Cudilleroenlace. This village is built like an amphitheatre over a hill made of three small hills, full of narrow streets and hanging colourful houses which protect its beautiful fishing port. We recommend you enjoy the gastronomy and sea products found in many restaurants and cider bars within the port area, and if you have the opportunity you should have a walk across this place at night. Lights from houses in the dark and the nocturnal environment which make this place a perfect place to spend an unforgettable stay.

    Santillana del Mar – Cantabriaenlace: Not far away from Cudillero, in the autonomous community of Cantabria you can find Santillana del Mar, which is a historic and artistic centre of the region, considered by many people a monument-village. Have a walk across the stoned streets, rest in its beautiful Tourist Hotel and do not miss its great attraction, the Museum of Altamira, a visitor centre of its famous caves which are considered to be the Sistine Chapel of Cave Paintings.

    Albarracín – Teruelenlace: Over 1.100 meter altitude, it was declared Historic-Artistic Set and aims to be declared World Heritage by UNESCO.

    Véjer de la Frontera – Cádizenlace: You will be attracted by its popular architecture of Arab-Andalusian style, narrow and steep streets, or the brightness brought by its immaculate white houses. It is close to the coast of Cadiz and the river Barbate, presumes of a lovely castle of Arab origin, its fortified area, the Jewish Quarter or its charming Plaza de España (Spanish quarter), which is well-known as “La Plaza de los Pescaitos” (Fishes Quarter) by locals.

    This is a perfect destination if you travel with kids, due to its uniqueness and charm of its “pallozas” (popular buildings of pre-roman origin which have been used until recently).
