Zahara de la Sierra

Zahara de la Sierra

This mountain village, declared a Historical Site, is situated in the foothills of the Sierra del Jaral, in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. Modern day Zahara was founded during the period of Moorish occupation. From that period, the town still preserves, apart from the typical labyrinthine Al-Andalus urban design, its 13th century castle with restored keep and the remains of the medieval village with stretches of walls.

Its hillside position imbues the village with an unusual urban appearance. The different levels mean that the streets are necessarily stepped. In the pretty town centre, the Santa María de la Mesa Church, the San Juan de Letrán Chapel, the Torre del Reloj (Clock Tower) and the Palominos Bridge are particularly interesting.

During the festival of Corpus Christi, declared a Festivity of National Tourist Interest, not only can you marvel at the sight of the meticulous ornamentation, you can also taste the local cuisine, with dishes such as the “quemones de cebolla” (a tomato dip with onion and parsley), the “sopas hervías” (bread and tomato soup) and the sugary tipsy cakes.

Beach and Reservoir

Apart from amazing panoramic views, the Zahara-El Gastor Reservoir offers many opportunities to enjoy various sports activities. In the Arroyomolinos Recreational Area, visitors can swim at an artificial beach in the heart of the Sierra de Cadiz.
