Interesting small town

Zafra is worth the small detour from the highway to Seville. The city centre has some nice old buildings and there is a good choice of bars and restaurants.

Zafra has a castle that you can stay in, it has a very nice pedestrian only shopping street, gates from the middle ages, two interesting and adjoining plazas, the plaza chica and the plaza grande where you can always find something to eat and people hanging out. It seems larger than it really is because it has good grocery stores... More

We spent three nights in Zafra, in part using it as a base to explore nearby attractions. The town is a real delight, popular with Spanish visitors but unspoilt by mass tourism. It is a relaxing place, easy to wander round on foot, with plenty of cafes and tapas bars to watch the world go by. We found the tourist... More

Several really charming hotels here, good food, if you are careful, and a quiet, pretty place to visit end of summer if on an Andalucian tour

This is the second time we've been here and it's a very nice village to visit. Slow paced, it's very quaint and it's great to windup on the Plaza grande

Zafra is a charming little Spanish town located just off the A66. Lots of tight streets and little plazas surrounded by a variety of shops and bars.

We travel through Spain each year and love having a couple of stopovers in different towns. Zafra was not a disappointment and it was a charming place to explore. Easy to walk round, although we actually have folding bikes so cycled. Everything of interest is centred around the historic old town; two lovely squares, Plaza Grande and Plaza Chico, adjoining...

We went here on the way from Merida (great little town!) to Sevilla (great big city!) and stopped here on the basis of TA's comments about it being a "Little Sevilla". What a crock! This place is a tired little burg with little to recommend it other than the Paradore built in a 14th century castle. That's pretty cool. The... More

Zafra is a lovely little town. I last visited a few years ago as I lived in a nearby town and Zafra was a short bus journey away. It is quite a small place, but it is nice, especially the town squares (plazas). There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the town, and I would also recommend visiting the... More
