Today i'm showing you around the historical town of Ubrique. Its another super cute pueblo blanco (white town) in the Cadiz province set at the foot of the Serrania de Ronda Mountains. You may have heard of it before as its world-renowned for its leather industry.
Its quite the drive from our home in Sotogrande to this remote town, about 2 hours and up some majorly high and windy mountain roads. But its a beautiful drive past villages in towns and sunflower fields.
The view of the mountains over the tiny little white town is incredible. Photographs just don't do it justice.
For over a century, Ubrique has been world-renowned for its leather industry supplying the likes of Loewe, Louis Vuitton and Gucci but from what I could tell these are kept well hidden... either that or I just didn't know where to look. Its like its their little secret.
Bouganvilla filled pots and succulents decorate the streets, as is the southern Spain go to style. And something iv come to love.
Head into the Plaza d'Espana, Its easy to find, as it is the only large open space in the upper section of the city. Here you'll find the the best views of the town. The detailing on some the buildings is so beautifully intricate. From here, you'll also see the church of San Antonio and the main church in the square.
After a cafe con leche, go and get lost in the beautiful cobbled and somewhat steep streets that lead to even more beautiful details. A town that seems from another century, sleepy but beautiful.
As far as Spanish towns go, this one is very authentic. I actually didn't see one tourist the whole time we were there. Its very rustic and full of charm. Almost run down in some parts, but in the best possible way. Its easy to see why the town has been declared a historic site.
Don't forget to stop off and get THE panoramic view of the town, its truly breathtaking and worth the trip alone
I loved Ubrique, its definitely worth checking out if your visiting southern Spain
