If you are a nature lover, we recommend to stop by Zahara de la Sierra. Located within the Sierra de Grazalema, you will be lucky enough to appreciate one of the most valuable ecological areas in the southern peninsula. Its importance is incalculable! UNESCO declared it a Biosphere Reserve, and it is a special protection area for birds. As a curiosity, it has the highest rate of rainfall in the Iberian Peninsula.
There is also an impressive forest of firs, considered a relic plant from the tertiary period. There are many active tourism activities you can practise here, such as canyoing, hiking or horseback riding, among others.
Zahara de la Sierra is the only town that has a forest of firs (pinsapos) within its town centre. This unique tree is a relic of the Quaternary. You can find other native trees around, such as the gall oak, the holm oak or the strawberry tree.
All this and more can be found in Zahara de la Sierra. TUDESTINO gives you all the information you need, as well as a set of activities that will make your time here unforgettable!
