Our travel guide to Zahara de la Sierra

Thanks to this Travel Guide to Zahara de la Sierra you can find all the activities and the best travel tips for your trip.

The Sierra del Jaral welcomes this mountain village on its skirts. Nestled inside the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, it was declared a Historic Site. The foundation of the current Zahara is due to the Muslim era. From those times the Tower Keep and the remains of the medieval town with sections of walls are preserved.

Its location along the hillside gives the village a peculiar urban physiognomy. The different levels force the streets to stagger. In its charming urban area, the Church of Santa María de la Mesa, the Chapel of San Juan de Letrán, the Clock Tower and the Puente de los Palominos stand out.

Likewise, the Corpus Christi feast was declared of National Tourist Interest. During this festivity you not only enjoy its careful ornamentation. You can also taste its local cuisine, with dishes such as quemones de cebolla, sopas hervías and borrachos azucarados.
