  • The centre of Iznajar is the 800 Castillo...which is a wonderful looking fortress only matched by the view. The Castillo itself is full of history with a small museum. Perhaps the most amazing thing about the fortress is the views which are spectacular.
  • Beautiful Views of the Reservoir
  • Tours can be booked via the Tourist Office. There was a small Art Gallery in the castle when I visited. Moorish ruins date back nearly a thousand years.
  • A must see

The North and Northeast slopes of the promontory are steep to acting as a natural wall, the rest presents a more gentle profile that has allowed the settlement of the hamlet. Traditionally has been considered the totality of this Emirate, mid 8th century era, space being renovated in the 10th century, although recent research work to date it in the 12th century. It was remodelled in the 18th century to winterize it as home of the administrator of the Duke of Sessa, a function he held until the beginning of the 20th century.
