Traditional Houses of Rural Spain

Bill Laws, Photograpy by Joaquim Castells Benosa

“With over 50 million foreign visitors each year, Spain is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. Increasingly, people are turning away from the over-commercialised seaside resorts in search of the ‘real’ Spain.

Traditional Houses of rural Spain looks at the distinctive building styles of this fascinating country, exploring how the vernacular architecture of each region has evolved. From the ancient, circular, thatched huts or pallozas in the rugged mountains of the North to the pueblos blancos (whitewashed Houses) of Andalucia in the South, this book examines the cultural and climatic conditions and their influences on local traditions.

The 150 colour photographs form the heart of the book and record Spanish regional style in all its diversity: farm buildings and outhouses in rolling landscapes, tiny villages on the ancient pilgrim route from France to Spain which still maintain much of their medieval atmosphere, and decorative details such as azulejo tiles, flower-filled courtyards and elaborate wrought ironwork.The result is a visual feast that will appeal to anyone interested in Spain and Spanish culture – whether homeowners, visitors or armchair travellers – enriching their knowledge and increasing their appreciation of the landscape.”
