We suggest a range of activities to make your stay even more enjoyable and memorable.
Zahara is the perfect place for nature lovers, given that most of it lies within the Sierra de Grazalema nature reserve. A large number
of different leisure, sporting and adventure activities can be done, such as hiking, climbing,
pony-trekking, mountain-biking, swimming (in summer), etc.
There are easy walking routes that can be done from the house, such as the sendero de La Bodega path
which is on the way to the municipal swimming pool.
Other paths such as the Garganta Verde route, the Llano de Rabel route and the Pinsapar route,m require you to get permission from the nature reserve
The reservoir also offers the opportunity to do water-sports such as canoeing and kayaking.
Zahara is also a perfect place for painters and photographers. Wandering round the village is a delight: thee views of its white houses, the tiled roofs, the flowers on the
balconies, the steep streets. Zahara transports the visitor back to another era, another time.
There is a path just behind the house called trascorrales whick goes to the Santa María de la Mesa church, after whick you can continue to the cementery and enjoy a panoramic view of the Zahara-El Gastor reservoir with the Tajo de Largarín rock in the background.
In the same direction, towards the cemetery, is the steep access to the Poblado Nazari and the Torre del Homenaje (13th - 15th century). With
appropriate footwear and a camera, you can visit the remains of the medieval village and the visitors' Centre. It's well worth the climb, form the top there are some of the best panoramic views
of the mountains.
