Beautiful small town on a hill. Free parking at Calle Barrera (do not attempt to drive into town!). Picturesque. Numerous viewpoints over the local landscapes. Medieval castle situated on an impressive rock. (We discovered belatedly that you have to ask for the key from the archaeological museum in the town square: 10am to 2pm). Several small snack/drink/gift shops and half a dozen restaurants/bars. We had lunch in Restaurante Zayuna, inside the hotel. A very pleasant stopping point between Granada and Cordoba.

It's a small, friendly town that is very well taken care of. People are generally quite friendly and the location is superb. There is a small museum of crafts and tools from the local area that is well worth the visit.
The Muslim castle gives great panoramas of the local area. It is attached to a small archaeological museum with a few Roman and Muslim pieces.

Our son works in a school in Puente Genil in Andalucia and at a recent visit he asked the locals which nearby town they would suggest for a visit. Zuheros was their choice. Its in the Cordoba mountains with traditional white houses with a Moorish castle at the top of the village. It is worth the drive and a nice stroll uphill from the car park to the top where there is a cafe/hotel where you can get a drink and take in the miles of views. Ideal place to take a camera. There appeared to be plenty of places to walk, and climb if you were more sporty. The sign to the tourist office took us on a journey to nowhere but we followed a sign to the "bat caves" which was about a 3 mile drive up some very windy roads that took us to the top of the mountain. Here you can look down upon Zuheros and even more fantastic views. The caves are supposed to be very good with cave drawings from neolithic times but they were shut when we got there! Make sure you take a camera.

We were finding it so incomprehensible that too many tourists are here. That in itself is not a good thing.

I really enjoyed my time in Zuheros, it is a quiet little village set in a great landscape. It is secluded but close to many other attractions. They have several great restaurants.

This is a pretty village, white painted houses with geraniums tumbling through wrought iron grills. The streets are steep and the parking difficult unless you use the allotted area at the bottom - we also found a parking area on the other side of town, follow the signs to the caves and there is a small car park next to the museum which would possibly be easier for those who don't like climbing hills. The main square has a number of bars and restaurants around it and it was lovely to sit in by the the ruined castle at dusk watching the housemartins weave and dive over the edge of the village. The view is pleasing and the prices for a drink in such a wonderful position (restaurant on the square with tables overlooking the view) surprisingly reasonable 3.50 euros for a coke and a Fino.

Stopped here en route to Granada having spent time in Cordoba.A lovely village in a really attractive mountain setting.A few streets worth strolling through before finally emerging onto the main plaza with its towering ruined castle ,old church,mirador and little bar/cafe.In November the place had a hushed, peaceful quality about it ,far removed from the slightly industrialised ,scattered areas below.Our timing was out to visit the Neolithic caves (with cave art) some 4km above the village and which you can only do with a guide at certain times of the day.Sounded really interesting .The museum too was closed(dreaded Spanish lunch time scenario, everything shut).
A very worthwhile stop for coffee/lunch and a look around,en route between the two cities.

We visited here through windy approaching roads. The village is picture perfect and has a lovely square with a beautiful Moorish castle - you have to ask at the museum in the square for the key. The square also has a lovely well priced eatery - we only had beer and ice creams but they were a good price. Worth a visit for the amazing views.

Centuries ago the town was made almost impregnable by its fortress, which resists the passage of time on a rocky crag. This walled precinct is reached through the pretty streets and public squares of this charming village.

The walled area, which has great views over the surrounding area, is thought to have been built by the Moors in the ninth century.

We drove here in a hire car on the way to visiting the caves above the village. We parked on the edge of the village. Drivers should be prepared for a steep road and hairpin bends. We enjoyed pottering around the town which was very quiet (it was Sunday and a lot of places were closed). We would have loved to go into the castle but missed the 12.30 tour and couldn't go to the 2.00 as we already had tickets for the caves. It is worth being aware that you can only go into the castle at certain times and plan your visit accordingly. There were a couple of shops where we could buy snacks and drinks and the café on the mirador was open. There would have been more choice, I think on a Monday-Saturday.
