    Espectacular view, you have to reach the place by car, about 7 km from the main road.
    You can see on the distance several villages and cities all around.

    The circulo de la Amistad mentioned in the guide books and by Tripadvisor is a private club for members only so although we could see the premise from the door we were not allowed in. As described it was a beautiful Spanish patio, well decorated and full of flowers and it was very sad to only be able to enjoy it from the closed doorway.

    The museums and churches also kept rather peculiar hours. We did go to el Barrio del Cerro and enjoyed seeing the many private patios with masses of flowers decorating walls and floors as we also visited the Medieval section of the town. I loved the beautiful closed balconies and some lovely ‘old’ houses Like the Villa Maria Hotel which was once a summer home of important personage.

    From the moment I heard of this place, Cabra, I was fascinated and felt it would be the right place for me to go and re-charge the batteries. Some friends had visited at Easter Time and they recommended we stay at the Hotel Villa Maria which although centrally situated and within reach of practically everywhere we would want to go it had a lovely park The Alcantara-Romero park, nearby. In fact it was right opposite my balcony and a lovely way to wake up and feel the fresh air and peacefulness.
    I believe there are only three hotels in or near town.

    We, (one of the party has mobility problems), were able to walk practically everywhere including the old town section and the lovely patios. Parking is difficult so once we found one, we never moved the car!

    Since during our stay there was quite a bit of rain we did not get to visit the magnificent Natural Subbetica Park which we would have loved. It was rather disappointing too to not be able to visit the churches as they were closed opening only at weekends.

    There are plenty of excellent restaurants. The Restaurante San Martin in the Plaza Mayor is most recommendable. Excellent food and lovely ambiance. Owner is the excellent cook producing some marvellous dishes. Not only is he an excellent professional but also a very kind gentleman who actually drove us back to the Hotel one night that it rained heavily.

    There are only two taxis in Cabra so we could not get one at the spur of the moment! In fact you had to book in advance if you wanted one.

    I don’t think that the Egabrense, the local Cabra inhabitants, can suffer from stress as they keep rather short business hours. Restaurants have days off so before you plan, phone to make sure the place will be opened! Meson La Casilla is also excellent, and then there is El Timon which is more like good home cooking, The Malaguena or La Gamba for drinks and a variety of tapas good enough to make a meal of. The shops open late morning and close at 2.00pm to reopen at 5.30 supposedly until 8.30pm. There are some lovely coffee houses where they also serve chocolate and churros (Spanish ritters0 which are lovely dipped in sugar. A normal Spanish breakfast as if toasted bread in oil or tomatoes.

    What I found most endearing was the lovely manners and behaviour of the locals. The restaurateur who took us home. The Hotel owner son who gave us a lift on a rainy day to town. The people in the street who courteously wishes you good day. If asked for an address they would actually take us there giving as much information as they could. My daughter left a scarf at the breakfast place and the owner phoned our hotel to inform them and kept it for her to collect. So much gentility and kindness like it once was all over the world! Most recommendable place to visit and near Cordoba, Lucena and villages of interest.

    NOTE: I have written several reviews since my return from Cabra and none of them have been printed. If you do not wish me to write anymore please let me know

    A beautiful limestone plateau national park in the heart of Andalucia bounded by Cordoba, Granada and Seville. The tourist trade is only just being developed now so the area remains largely sleepy and undiscovered. In October 2015 we stayed in Zuheros, walked out every day for a week into the many hidden valleys of the area and rarely came across another walker or cyclist, even on the Via Verde, the old olive railway now converted to a walking and cycling path that snakes its way through valleys, over gorges and through tunnels with the view changing very minute. Signs exist up in the hills but very infrequently and for those of us spoilt with Ordnance Survey maps the maps in the area are large scale, poor in detail and often incomplete. So you need to use the guided notes provided by groups like Headwater or provided by the hotels. These need to be followed meticulously as paths are inclined to disappear, even those that are supposed to be National Paths. Despite the lack of reliable topographical maps do take a compass with you as it is easy to be become disorientated on the twisting and turning landscape. But it really is superb, unspoilt and great for bird watching (Golden Eagles, Vultures, Bea Catchers and the like), cycling on mountain bikes (Just watch out for the edge!) or of course walking or even running.
