The nearest town (5 minutes drive) is Ayamonte, which stands high above the river Guadiana and appears to be gazing towards Portugal. It is a frontier town and an important fishing port. Its maritime character is further enhanced by its dockyards and other naval trappings. During the summer months the ferry which connects it to neighbouring Portugal sees a continual coming and going of travellers, and the town becomes especially lively. In Ayamonte, there are neatly whitewashed houses, pleasant squares, Baroque churches and some traces of the Manueline style owing to the influence of its proximity to Portugal. There is also a beautiful promenade along the harbour which is lined with palm trees called the Paseo de la Ribera, as well as stepped streets and some aristocratic mansions and palaces.
At dusk the traveller can enjoy the climb to the "Costa de la Luz" Parador to contemplate the river, the lands of Portugal and the town at their feet as it shines under the setting sun. In Ayamonte even the terrace roofs are whitewashed.
