Next time a cold front brings snow to Spain and the weather allows for travel, try to visit one of these breathtaking snowcapped villages.


Spain has its fair share of picture-perfect pueblos that are worth a visit in the warmer months, but when it comes to winter getaways, there are a handful of pueblos that make braving the cold all the more worth it. 

Some of them are mountainous municipalities, others that are on Spain’s vast open plains see the mercury plummet in winter bringing with it snow, and there’s even a snow-covered village on the holiday island of Mallorca.


So when the next snowy blizzard blows its way across to your part of Spain and you’re in the mood for a fairy-tale day trip, set your GPS to one of these winter wonderlands.

Ronda (Málaga province, Andalusia). Technically it isn't a village but Ronda is far too picturesque in the snow to leave out of the list.

Ávila (Castilla y León). More of a town than a pueblo, Ávila looks truly majestic after a snowfall.
