Prado del Rey The Essential
Although Prado del Rey is located close to the whitewashed towns of Arcos de la Frontera and Villamartín, unlike its neighbours it is not made up of a jumble of houses clustered on a hillside; instead, it is laid out in a perfectly geometric pattern. This is because it was founded by King Charles III in the 18C, at a time when planning concepts drew on the rationalism of the Enlightenment for inspiration.
