Care and respect for our heritage
The Most Beautiful Villages in Spain was born of the desire to tell everybody all about the wonderful villages dotted around our beautiful country. Places of great beauty, rich in both history and culture, whose traditions envelop the traveller as they mix with the locals to become part of this unique setting even if only for a few moments.
Through this website, we aim to promote rural areas and small municipalities, along with the different initiatives undertaken by the association, also employing the internet, press or other means of communication.
The Most Beautiful Villages in Spain Association does not have or seek any political interest. It will however lobby for the involvement of the different administrations in supporting, caring for and respecting our heritage, as well as promoting cultural events associated with our villages.
Based on the above, it is clear that on this website you will find a selection of villages and small towns that stand out in terms of their quality, excellence and - of course - beauty. We would like to encourage you to visit the selected villages, but also to actively participate in this website with your opinions and ideas, so that we can continue to build on this project and feed back to the villages through our contacts in the local councils.
