The Andalucia / Cadiz Province region
He Andalucia / Cadiz Province region
Situated in the South-Western province of Cadiz—the heart of Spain’s sherry region—Arcos was declared a national historic-artistic monument in 1962 in recognition of its exceptional architecture and impressive location. The old town is a tangled labyrinth of cobbled streets and alleys that lead up to the churches of Santa Maria de la Asuncion and San Pedro. From the square at the top, there are spectacular views of the Andalusian countryside.
A 20 minute drive from Arcos, you will find Jerez de la Frontera—renowned for its sherry and brandy production, as well as its fine horses and Flamenco. The town also dates back to Moorish times and has a charming old town and palm lined squares. Jerez is also famous for Flamenco, and the flamenco festival of Jerez at the end of February is one of the most important in the world.
Another 20 minutes to the West, and you reach the Costa de la Luz—200 miles of unspoilt coast line and shimmering white beaches. There are plenty of tranquil spots along the coast between Puerto de Santa Maria and Tarifa. You can always find good seafood and tapas restaurants too up and down the coast.
Like Arcos, there are many other Pueblos Blancos throughout the province, which share a history involving the centuries-long fight of the Spaniards to reconquer Spain. Medina Sidonia, Vejer de la Frontera, Olvera and Grazalema are but a few worth visiting. Or travel further East to the town of Ronda, the birthplace of modern bull fighting and a favourite of Hemmingway.
Along the way, you will pass through the beautiful countryside of the Sierra de Grazalema - a 50,000 hectare protected natural park. There is lots to do if you are looking for an active holiday: from walking to horse riding, to learning to paraglide, wind or kite surf. The main cities in the area are Seville – an easy 60 minute drive away, and Cadiz on the coast.
The Arcos de la Frontera / Novo Arcos area
There’s plenty to do in and around Arcos all year round. A few minutes’ drive from Arcos, you will find A championship 18-hole golf course. It is versatile enough to challenge top level amateur and professional players yet can also accommodate novices and has its own practise area. Close by, you can also try horse riding through the Andalusian countryside. And there are plenty of other opportunities in the Sierras if you feel like exploring further afield. This is also an ideal area for bird watchers, walkers and nature lovers.
Arcos has events and fiestas throughout the year. The most original in the region is the week before Christmas, when the old town is transformed into ancient Bethlehem as Arcos stages its own nativity play—the Belen Viviente—on a gigantic scale. Arcos has its own carnival celebrations in February. For those wanting to continue the fiesta, Cadiz offers 10 days of non-stop revelry.
Come springtime, the warm evenings see the local people dining out on the terraces long into the evening. During Semana Santa, the week leading up to Easter, the processions pass through the old and new town, followed by a local marching band playing traditional music, and long lines of people in traditional costumes. Each float depicts a scene from the bible from holy week, and is carried between the ancient churches.
On Easter Sunday, Arcos has its own celebrated bull run—el Toro de Aleluya—where locals and the odd foreigner demonstrate their bravery. The weekend following Easter is the Moto Grand Prix of Jerez, where Arcos plays host to many of the competitors and fans.
The Cruces de Mayo—the crosses of May—is another local tradition in which the patios and courtyards are decorated with floral arrangements in the shape of crosses. As Summer begins, so do las carpas—a series of concerts, fiestas and performances which take place at different venues throughout Arcos. There are weekly flamenco concerts throughout July and August.
Flamenco also features during the celebration of the Virgin de las Nieves—the Virgin of the Snows which takes place during the first weekend of August. And as Summer draws to a close at the end of September, Arcos celebrates the fiesta of its patron saint—the Feria de San Miguel.

3. Stay on the A4 for about 3km and take Exit 631, marked for Cádiz, Seville and Arcos de la Frontera. As you come off the slip-road at Exit 631 you will reach a roundabout; take the 3rd exit, signposted ‘A-382 Arcos’.
4. At the next roundabout, take the 2nd Exit marked ‘A-382 Arcos de la Fra’ and then take the slip road that will be immediately on the right, signposted ‘Arcos/Cádiz’. NOTE: As you come onto the slip road, keep in the inside, right hand lane as you DO NOT want to join the road to Cádiz. By keeping in the inside, right hand lane the slip road will head away from the Cádiz road and you will see a sign for Arcos, and you will also pass some stables on the left hand side (you will have travelled about 9km by this point.)
5. You are now at the very start of the A-382 (you will see a green marker showing ‘A-382 0km’). You will stay on this road until you come off for Arcos at Junction 20.
6. Exit the A-382 at Junction 20 signposted for Arcos de la Fra. (Oeste). You are about 1.5km from the outskirts of Arcos.
7. As you enter Arcos, the first roundabout is at Carrefour, which is on the hill to your left hand side; go straight through this roundabout.

10. Carry on down the hill until you come to the next round about. Take the second exit, to your left you will see Arcos football stadium.
11. Take first right and take the second street on your left, follow this down to the bottom and turn right and then about 100 metres up you will see a small track to your left.
12. Take this track, (be careful crossing) as there is a sharp blind bend in the road ahead of you. Follow the track for about 50 metres and it will come out onto a road. This is Camino de Bornos. Drive up the hill and the first street you pass on your left is Puerto Santa Maria. Park just up ahead on either side of the road and the enterance gate is on your left.
From Seville Airport:
1. Upon leaving the car park, follow the signs marked Salidas.
2. Continue along this road before merging onto the N-IV, signposted ‘E-5 Sevilla’.
3. Continue forward onto the E-5, signposted ‘SE-30 Granada, E-5 Cádiz, N-IV Huelva’.
4. Continue forward and merge onto the A-4, signposted ‘E-5 Cádiz’. You will have travelled about 16km by this point and you will stay on the A-4 for about 75km.

6. Once you have merged onto the A-382, follow the directions from Jerez Airport from point 5.

1. We assume that you have hired a car from Crown Car Hire and are therefore on the Spanish side of the border at La Linea.
2. As you exit the underground car park of Crown Car Hire, turn right and follow along the road until McDonalds is on the left hand side. Turn right and follow this road (going straight through all of the roundabouts) and merge onto the N-340, signposted ‘E-15 Algeciras, N-340 Cádiz’.
3. Leave the N-340 at Junction 110, signposted ‘A-381 Los Barrios, Jerez de la Frontera’.
4. Once on the A-381 (known as the Los Barrios road) it is a straight road for about 100km and you will travel the full length of the road. As you come to the end of the road (you will see the road markers reducing to 0km) you will see signs for Sevilla and Cádiz. Take the first turning on the right, signposted Sevilla.
5. This will bring you onto the A4 and you need only stay on this road for one junction, which will be signposted ‘A-382 Arcos’.
6. Once you have merged onto the A-382, follow the directions from Jerez Airport from point 5.
From Málaga Airport:
1. As you leave the airport, follow signposts for ‘N-340 Torremolinos, Cádiz’.

4. You will have the option along the AP-7 to continue along the AP-7 (toll road) or use the A-7 (toll-free road). We would suggest that you stay on the AP roads and pay the tolls (three toll booths; total cost approx. 20 Euro).
5. As you near San Roque you will see signs for the N-340 and the A-381. Follow the directions from Gibraltar Airport from point 3.
