Olvera, Spain is the start of the "Pueblo Blancos Route" and is, itself, one of the beautiful white villages of southern Spain. The hills surrounding Olvera are full of olive tree plantations that provide some of the best olive oils in Andalusia, an area famous for olive oil. The town has a beautifully scenic ancient Moorish castle that was built in the late 11th and early 12th century, which resides high on an outcropping of rock above the town. The photos on this page include Olvera Castle, also known as the Castillo de Olvera, the Olvera church, and the city streets and buildings. These pictures of Olvera can be seen using the Slideshow below. See a compilation of other European castle photos here. Everything else TheWorldinLight has to offer can be seen at Destinations and Topics.
