Zahara de la Sierra

Rugged Zahara, linked together witha vertiginous crag right at the bottom of the Grazalema mountains, just outsdie the turquoise Embalse de Zahara, hums with Moorish mystery. This edifice stood on for over 150 years in the 14th and 15th centuries against the christian Olvera, which is not far away. Nowadays Zahara posses all the classic white-town boxes and is perfect for hikers at the Garganta Verde, which makes it popular. In the afternoon, even during the siesta, it is still quiet.The precipitous CA9104 road over the ultrasteep 1331m Puerto de las Palomas (Doves’ Pass) connects Zahara with Grazalema (17km) and is a perfect drive that consists of white-knuckle switchbacks.
