“Recently restored castle with great views”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Beautiful castle, lots to explore, local English-speaking tour guide, wonderful views. Shame that the videos were a literal translation and often the English subtitles did not make sense.

“Iznajar lake drive”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We had an amazing drive around the Iznajar lake (reservoir) in April. We drove from the village across the bridge in the middle of the lake (not the dam end). We then turned immediately right and followed the narrow, dusty tarmac round for miles. Sometimes the road was not tarmac and had potholes but was fine to dive along. We saw lots of wildlife including partridges etc. The route took us to the road that crosses the dam. I think that the route took approx 1.5 hours.

“Individual tour”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Excellent we had an individual tour in English! Some parts not suitable for elderly people. Don't miss a break at the Blue Pots Terrace just around the corner

“Call Before you Go”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

A few reviews mentioned that there was only one tour per day, at 12:30. We reported to the ticket desk an hour beforehand only to be told that there would be no tour that day. The mayor had called for an impromptu meeting!

I think it shows little concern for tourists if a mayor decides to cancel the only tour of the day of its main attraction for a meeting. So call before going!

“Do not miss”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

If you're in the area, do not miss this charming attraction. Boasting stunning views of the surrounding countryside, it's a work in progress as the local council is restoring some of it's glory. The guided tour begins in the library, once a grain store, at midday and takes you through a history of the area and the castle and ends with a weird and wonderful look at the gallery of a local artist. Entrance fee is only 2.50 euro per head. Visit the blue square afterwards for tapas.
