Iznajar: colour and beauty 

Iznajar is located in the heart of Andalusia, in the south of the province of Cordoba and on the border with the provinces of Granada and Malaga. Nestled in the Sierras Subbéticas, it offers countless opportunities to enjoy nature. Moreover, the Sierras Subbéeticas Natural Park includes a great wealth of landscapes and ecology. What’s more, the Subbética Greenway leads you to stroll through olive groves and vineyards along the route of the old Olive Oil Train. And as if that were not enough, the Iznájar reservoir, better known as the Lake of Andalusia, provides a perfect setting for water sports. Iznajar gives its name to the largest reservoir in Andalusia, and the second largest in Spain. From this village you can see the largest turquoise water surface in the area.

Visiting other villages

The great limestone massif is framed by gentler terrain and valleys at lower altitudes. And it is here that the main towns and villages are located. All of them are well worth a visit. However, there are eight villages that dazzle.

Apart from the beauty of their buildings. Each village is distinguished by something. For example, Cabra is home to one of the largest reserves of geological resources. Zuheros surprises with its Cueva de Murciélagos (Cave of Bats) and every year attracts visitors with its Fiesta de Quesos (Cheese Festival). Carcabuey sweetens with its delicious quince jelly. And for wine lovers, Doña Mencía gets an honourable mention, as does Luque with its olive oil. Priego de Córdoba also stands out as the cradle of Andalusian Baroque. Rute delights us with its renowned aniseed and marzipan. Iznájar, for its part, deserves a special section.
