“Village and castle worth a quick visit”

We popped into the village for a look around as we were spending the weekend nearby. The village looks impressive from afar, with the caste at the top, as you would expect, and the reservoir down below.
There's not a great deal to see in the village and you need strong legs to walk up to the castle, but once there, there are some great views of the nearby countryside.

A beautiful location. Quite small as castles go, but lovely views, a peaceful location and a nice place to rest after the long trek up the hill.

The castle, with the parish church outside, dominates the hill on which the beautiful town of Iznajar is built. The restoration of the castle took an immense amount of time to accomplish, but it repays a visit. Not perhaps for the castle itself; apart from a few rooms, some battlements and a cistern, there is not a great deal to be seen, but the view from the towers overlooking the lake are spectacular and really worth seeing. There is also a slide show giving the history of the castle. This is in Spanish with subtitles in English that may cause amusement as they were clearly done using an internet translator.
In summer, there are occasional concerts in the evening in the central courtyard of the castle. These can be wonderful; the acoustic is good and the setting sheer magic.

Fascinating tour of the castle (and town) with Lucia from the local tourist office. The castle dates from the 10th century and has been sympathetically renovated. Highlights include a short but very interesting video (though the English subtitles need a lot of corrections!) and the climb down into the ancient water deposit. Awesome views over the town and Lake Iznajar from the towers and walls.

Beautiful location set in the real Andalusia. If you want to be off the beaten path, then this place is ideal. Loved it.
