A very pretty hill town in a lovely setting overlooking a large lake. Stop for a delicious lunch at Al Lago and enjoy the view!

A short climb to the tower gives great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Well worth the effort!

This has to be one of the best places in Andalucia with stunning views over the lake and mountains. All the locals are very friendly and helpful.
