PTV B - Medina Sidonia

MEDINA SIDONIA

Set atop a hill called “Cerro del Castillo" (at an altitude of 300 m), it is definitely worth stopping and strolling around this medieval village. Founded by the Phoenicians, it became an important Roman colony and was also capital of the Muslim district of Sidonia.

 

Medina Sidonia is famous for its pastries and in particular the ‘Alfajor de Medina’, a traditional Spanish sweet of Arab origin made from almonds, hazelnuts, sesame seeds, cinnamon and cloves.
