Madrid, the national capital, is situated 200 miles (322 kilometers) north of Alcaudete, while Granada lies 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the southeast.
Don't restrict yourself to Alcaudete, because this region features numerous natural and man-made attractions waiting to be explored. Las Lagunillas and Algarinejo are two other places you may wish to visit while you're in Andalucia.
About 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the southwest of Alcaudete is Priego de Cordoba, an important regional city home to Neptune's Fountain, Priego de Cordoba Castle and Carnicerias Reales. The Church of La Asuncion and House Museum of Niceto Alcala are a number of other places definitely worth visiting for those who have time to spare.
If you're looking for indoor entertainment, head to Andalucia's excellent art museums, history museums and art galleries. These are great spots to learn about the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps pick up an unusual souvenir. Venture back into the past during your stay in this area. Make the time to visit one of the castles for which this part of the world is well known.
Explore a side of this incredible region most visitors don't see by accompanying an expert guide on one of the winery tours, cycling tours and culinary tours. Have a break from sightseeing and spend a relaxing afternoon snorkeling or kite surfing.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the new friends you've made and the locations you've been.
