Photographer's Note

Olvera is one of several white villages (los pueblos blancos) sprinkiling the Andalusian countryside. They are usually settled on the top of hills and dominated by a castle a church, or both. They were so built to defen themselves agains invaders, some of them date back to the time of Moorish occupation which explains their architecture.
