Cazorla

view map

Discovering Cazorla is a gift for any traveller. Its magnificent location showcases, on the one hand, rugged natural mountain ranges, and on the other, extensive olive groves. The old quarters conserve beautiful stone buildings, balconies decorated with flowers, fountains and magnificent viewpoints. These characteristics of an Andalusian mountain town contrast with the modern cultural town that exists today, offering music, theatre, museums and fine cuisine that will make you want to return.
Peña de los Halcones peak, the Salvatierra castle and La Yedra castle, all of which can be seen from any spot in the old town, are a reminder that this is a frontier town that defended its independence with fortifications and mountains.
La Yedra castle presides over one of the best views of Cazorla. Of Arab origin – probably from the Almohavid period – it was remodelled by Christians in subsequent centuries. A tour of the castle will also afford an opportunity to visit the museum of Art and Popular Customs.
