Olvera,king of the white towns in Southern Spain

In the reconquest of Southern Spain by Christian forces the first town to fall in the east of Andalusia was Olvera in 1327. The Christians changed the name used by the Moors up until then  'Wupira' to Olvera for the great number of olive trees in the area. This spectacular town is still surrounded by olive groves in all direction.The massive Moorish Castle dominates the town and the entire region.
