Fuente Tójar, Spain - Andalusia, home of La Cubertilla Fuente Tójar may not be the place you first think of when you go on holiday in Andalusia, but because of its convenient location, close to nature and between the most important cities, it is certainly a place from which you can go in all directions. It offers few amenities but there are three small supermarkets, three bars where they serve tapas and an ATM machine. In the summer months there is a bar / restaurant, part of the municipal swimming pool center, which also serves various tapas. Fuente Tójar is the closest to the city, the baroque gem Priego de Córdoba, the city with the most amenities in the region. Priego de Córdoba can be reached in less than 15 minutes from Fuente Tójar. Priego de Córdoba The capital of the Subbética region, offers a fantastic location on a plateau overlooking the Subbética mountain range. Although the history of Priego is more than 8,000 years old, the city came to the fore in the eighteenth century, when the richness of the silk and textile industry financed the construction or renovation of the Baroque churches and buildings for which it is famous . Most of Priego's monuments are within walking distance of the old center, built on the edge of the plateau around the thirteenth-century Moorish castle. In Priego de Córdoba you have a beautiful historic neighborhood, Barrio de la Villa, and a baroque fountain Fuente del Rey. The Barrio de la Villa district dates from the time the Moors lived here. It is the old center of Priego de Córdoba. Barrio de la Villa is partly walled and mainly consists of winding streets with whitewashed houses. This place is romance at its best! As a visitor, a walk through this originally Arabian neighborhood is a journey of discovery of beautiful places. As far as we are concerned, the highlight is Balcón del Adarve. This arc-shaped street is on the northeastern side of the village. The height of 55 meters gives an unobstructed panoramic view of the surroundings of Priego de Córdoba. You can walk to Fuente de la Salud and Fuente del Rey via the beautiful Calle del Rio street. Along the way you see a number of beautiful and sometimes stately Andalusian buildings. The two fountains date from the sixteenth and early twentieth centuries. The place where they lie is mainly seen by the impressive Fuente del Rey as one of the most beautiful places in Priego de Córdoba. Some tourists even drive to Priego because of the fountains.
