Strategically positioned on a hilltop, Zahara de la Sierra was part of the Nasrid network of defences. Below it there lies a green valley, in which the man-made Lake Zahara shimmers (fine panoramic views from the top of the 12C castle). In the archetypal whitewashed village square is the 18C Baroque church, Santa María de Mesa.
