Medina Sidonia
The Essential
To reach this provincial town, the road passes through an undulating landscape home to ranches that breed fighting bulls for the bullring. Medina Sidonia takes its name from the Phoenicians and the Moors - like all strongholds in the region, it was occupied by successive waves of conquerors. This pleasant whitewashed town, with its impressive views from the ruins of its castle, is well worth a stop.
