Castellar de la Frontera is elevated on a rocky promontory with its emblematic castle dominating the entire Bay and the Rock of Gibraltar. This town is considered the green area of the region, since it benefits from the extensive Los Alcornocales Natural Park. Therefore, it offers abundant nature and great beauty.
This town belongs to the Ruta del Toro. This route goes through the native farms allowing visitors to learn about the cattle tradition and see how brave bulls and retinto cows live.
You can visit several historical points, such as the Santísimo Cristo Almoraima Sanctuary, a church that stands out for its modern architecture. The Roman Road of Castellar is a cobbled road that runs from La Jarana to the Old Town and reaches the castle walls. Discover Plaza Andalucía, an old square that is located in the heart of the town.
Another famous attraction is the Castellar Zoo. It allows you to know a great variety of exotic animals that live in spaces similar to their natural habitats.
The location of Castellar de la Frontera allows visitors to enjoy both cultural tourism and active tourism. You can practise all kinds of sports and outdoor activities in a unique natural environment.
Castellar is an ideal place for any visitor travelling alone or with the whole family. Come and live new experiences, relax and get to know the Cádiz culture.
