Arcos sits along a ridgeline above the impressive cliff, Pena Nueva, overlooking the winding Guadelete River and its broad valley. The opposite side of the ridge, Pena Vieja, overlooks Lago de Arcos. The old town centre sits at the highest point, with steep, narrow streets of whitewashed homes cascading down the ridgeline. Motor traffic flows only west to east into the old town, then loops back, leaving the towns labyrinth to be explored peacefully on foot. Your guide will point out the most important venues in the village such as the Plaza Cabildo for you to peer from the plaza's open north side down onto the golden cliffs and out across the river plain. The old Castillo (fort) and Santa Maria Church overlook the square, along with one of Spain's better Paradors (state-operated historic inns). Climb the church bell tower for one of the most spectacular views in Spain. You'll need to tip the tower keeper to climb through his home to reach the bells and the view. Gaze out over the river plain and lake, then peer down onto steep, winding village streets. The church dates from the 7th century, containing elements of Romanesque and later Gothic styles. The church's interesting interior, open in the evening, shows off an Andalusian Baroque choir and altar. Proceed to the "Parador de Arcos" or Casa del Corregidor - a restored 18th century palace to refresh yourself with a drink and to enjoy the lovely environment before returning to Cadiz.

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 1.55 miles over uneven and cobblestone surfaces, steep inclines and numerous steps. Due to the steep uphill walking at Arcos, this tour is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties or wheelchairs. Shorts or bare shoulders are not permitted in the Cathedral. Please dress conservatively.
