Costa Blanca, Spain

Why we like white buildings so much? Could you explain me this phenomena?

When you visit Capri, for example, you notice the white houses of this island. With different kinds of ornaments in ceramics and luxuriant nature, white walls are probably the best possible "background". Ohhh, they are protagonists of the island there. And I was sure Capri is the unique place in the world that we can call the island of white houses.

Many years passed, and finally I visited Capri once more. I was in Anacapri, the town that remained in my dreams as the white town. Something changed in this period and the town was not so white as I remembered it...

Similar effect create white trullis that you can find in many places if you visit Apulia. But really white is the White Town there. Ostuni. Completly white.

Well, in any case I thought, THOSE are the white towns.
My friend visited Costa Blanca in Spain and turned home fashinated by this white place. The houses are white there, too (first photo). But not this is the reason they call it the White Coast. This coast is literally white. Because it's formed by white stones! (second photo).
