  • We went to Zahara to know its reservoir and that already several friends us the recomedaron. I do not recommend to go to the dam or reservoir because you get and have to go to an area which is a kind of large pool called "la playita"... get you excellent and to enter you have to pay € 4.50 per person, it is a large swimming pool with green water and shit and say you are in a turf that if that is true that this well that You can take food, pets do not leave. Apart from this, then went to the people and the truth is that we really liked but it was small and cozy, that if it is worth visiting it, the views from the top are beautiful. No more I guess, I don't have the feeling of returning as when you have feeling out pleased to somewhere.

  • If you want to describe what is a pueblo blanco definitely Zahara de la Sierra is a good example. Small village where the houses are painted a dazzling white, perched on a hill dominated by the inevitable Castle (another antique Tower is at the foot of the village), rich of flowers including le bouganvillee of bright pink. The artificial lake at the foot of the village gives a hint of blue, but is not essential. Affect the country collected, maintained very well, narrow streets that rise to the church square (beautiful and characteristic from the outside) and the unexpected presence of different water sources, in an area so torrid and tortured by the Sun in the summer. In a small town a number of clubs, open on Sundays and good food shops. Dear Mrs. of the shop of cheeses and desserts in the square, which has worked hard to explain that to go in Grazalema was appropriate not to use the road that goes from the port (which means Step) de Las Palomas, very narrow, steep and winding road with our campers, but the most accessible road that goes along the Lake. If you have a medium big may be good advice

  • A good place to spend a day great but if you are going in the summer that you have water with you. I recommend the Castle, the Church, the Garganta Verde

  • Zahara de la Sierra can be seen from miles away because it is situated in one of the most dramatic locations of all the White Towns. Its 13th-century Moorish castle stands high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the sugar-cubed houses of the village that also enjoys a hilltop setting. The village was built by the Moors in the 8th century and was an important stronghold of the Nasrids until the Christians captured it in the 15th century. There is a fine church - the Baroque Iglesia de Santa María de Mesa that was built in the 18th century. Zahara de la Sierra has been declared a National Monument.
