The Frontera was the “frontier” between the Moors and the Christians which continued to shift for many centuries. Today, it refers to the hillside towns of glowing, white houses that provide picturesque old towns and dramatic scenery for tourists. The towns were built at the top of the hills for defensive purposes. The Community of southern Spain along the coast is called Andalucia.
