Zahara de la Sierra White Village

The stunning little village of Zahara de la Sierra is set into a steep hillside in the province of Cádiz, 55 kilometers from Arcos de la Frontera. The town dates back to Moorish times and endured a turbulent history because of the conflicts between Islamic and Christians rulers. By the 15th century, the Christians reconquered the Zahara de la Sierra with help from Don Fernándo. The village is famous for its fiesta of Corpus Christi (around Easter), a traditional religious festival featuring elaborate decorations all over town. The festival is a lively event that has become a popular tourist attraction. Spring and summer bring blooming fields of wildflowers, making it a popular time for nature lovers to visit.
