The traffic in the narrow streets of Arcos de la Frontera can be a bit disconcerting. Stepping into this beautiful building makes it seem very far away. The exhibits of photography and local history when I visited were very good.

We discovered this as we were walking away from the stunning panorama of Arcos. The Palacio includes very interesting works from local painters and photographers as well as artefacts that include old typewriters and printing blocks. Free entry.
