Castillo de Iznajar (Iznajar Castle), Iznajar

(4.2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Castillo de Iznájar is a castle located in Iznájar, Province of Córdoba in Andalucia, southern Spain. The castle is perched on the high ridge. It has a triangular design, truncated on the northeast side, with its longest side facing south, and a large central space. It is surrounded by a stretch of wall with flanking towers at the southeast and southwest corners. The east side is closed by a rectangular building, which is attached to the west with a pentagonal tower at the bow, and another tower in the east. Early access to the castle is believed to have been from the east side through a building attached to the primitive rectangular tower. It was declared a Bien de Interés Cultural monument on June 22, 1993.

  • It's a steep walk up to the castle (you can drive but the roads are narrow), it was closed when we got there, so was the church, there's a nice cafe near the top and the views from the top are lovely,...  more »
  • I recommend a day visit by the white villages of la Subbética Mountains (South of Córdoba): Santa fe, Iznajar, Rute, Lucena, Cabra, Zuheros and Priego de Córdoba (slept in this last which is one of the best in the area). We did it by car and it is very easy to access by perfect little winding roads that have their charm, well marked and always surrounded by olive groves, ride and very beautiful and enjoyable. The white villages are wonderful, all have their charm. Iznájar has the characteristic that is seen from the road as a white village on a hill and at its peak is a castle, but the most striking is that is surrounded by a large reservoir of Turquoise, yellow fields in September (autumn) completely covered with olive groves. A beauty. I highly recommend it. Always in these villages is left the car in parking sometimes public and other payment and can be covered on foot. Worth, live and enjoy this adventure.
