Susana grew up in the area and knows all the insider tips and every corner of Conil.

About Conil de la Frontera
Conil is a beautiful white village only 5km from El Palmar. These are typical for Andalusia and Conil is one of the most beautiful white villages in southern Spain. Especially enchanting are the green courtyards, one of which you will get to know on the tour.

The cultural tour begins with a short walk through Conil de la Frontera. You will get to know the authentic side of the village with the fishermen's quarter. Afterwards we take you to a wine tasting with tapas in a rustic vinotheque. The final and highlight of the tour is a visit to a romantic Spanish patio with a flamenco performance.

Together you will explore a real insider tip: the old fishermen's quarter in Conil. This district is so secret that no tourist will get lost here and even some locals don't know it. Be sure to pack your camera.

Wine Tasting & Tapas

That would be an evening of Spanish culture without food and wine? During a stopover at the cosy wine bar La Solera, you can taste the Andalusian wines. And there are really delicious tapas to go with it. Owner Roberto tells entertaining anecdotes and you will learn a lot about each of the wines. Did you know, for example, that the famous sherry comes from the Cádiz region?

Flamenco Performance

For the cherry on the icing on the cake, we'll take you to a 250-year-old courtyard. Here you can lean back and inhale a piece of Andalusian history. Andalusian tradition also includes flamenco. Fortunately we know a gifted flamenco dancer in Conil de la Frontera. Paula, a professional dancer, performs a very special piece of dance exclusively for our guests. Whether you know something about Flamenco or not, we guarantee that you will be thrilled!
