Benaocaz is an ancient Moorish village with flower-adorned whitewashed houses and beautiful mountain scenery. The historic area of the village, the Barrio Nazarí, dates back to the eighth century and has a typical Islamic flavor with its maze of narrow, winding streets and pedestrian staircases. Be sure to see the Aznalmara Castle built in the 13th and 14th centuries. Also worth visiting are the San Blas and Del Calvario Hermitages and the San Pedro Apóstol Parish Church. The village is 46 kilometers from Arcos de la Frontera in the Sierra de la Cádiz, an area with many scenic hiking paths and walking routes, including a trail along the ancient Roman Road.
