Prado del Rey is part of the Route of the White Villages of Cádiz, a route that offers you the possibility of visiting a group of villas bathed by lime, with winding streets and distributed among the western mountain ranges that give rise to the Penibetic mountain range. A region strewn with Iberian, Phoenician, Roman, Visigoth and, above all, Arab vestiges, since we are in one of the last strongholds of Al-Andalus. Hence, many town names and place names originate from this culture.
The contrast of its flowery balconies with the white walls, as well as the perfect distribution of its straight streets, sown with orange and lemon trees, which welcome the visitor with a warm welcome and give Prado del Rey an exquisite beauty.
Among the local festivals of Prado del Rey we can highlight the Pilgrimage of San Isidro Labrador (next Sunday to May 15), the Evening of Carmen (July 15 to 18), the Cattle Fair (first weekend of September) and New Year's Eve (the whole town dresses up). Various sporting and cultural events take place throughout the year that give life to this town founded by Pablo de Olavide, mayor of King Carlos III, in 1768.
The Hotel Del Carmen enjoys a natural environment without equal, thanks above all to the proximity of the Natural Parks of the Sierra de Grazalema and Los Alcornocales. This unique location offers the visitor a beautiful place where the emblematic Pinsapar de la Sierra de Cádiz is located, an area declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO.
One step away from Ronda, Arcos de la Forntera, Jerez, Cádiz or Seville, where you can visit and learn about our culture and traditions. The Route of the White Villages shows you different towns with picturesque enclaves, crafts, culture and nature that make you not keep your camera.
