Among the visits of interest, you should stop by the Church of San José, the Diego de El Gastor Fountain, the Palomino Brothers Oil Mill and the Museum of Traditions. Cavers will enjoy caves such as Fariña or El Susto to the fullest. But water sports enthusiasts can do the same in the Zahara-El Gastor Reservoir, and hikers in the Tajo de Algarín and Las Grajas. Of the local handicrafts, we highlight the gaita castoreña bagpipe and pleitas (a kind of plait made with palms or wicker), while the Corpus Christi is declared of National Tourist Interest.
