The white town of Olvera in Cádiz, Southern Spain 10 May 2019
About this photo
Olvera is one of the most striking of the pueblos blancos (white towns) that crown the hilltops of Andalucía. A monument to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on a natural outcrop of rock dominates the lower town, and pilgrims have been known to crawl for miles on their hands and knees, in fulfilment of a vow, to the popular sanctuary of Virgen de los Remedios.
