Zahara village centres on Calle San Juan; towards its western end stands the 20th-century Capilla de San Juan de Letrán, with a Moorish-origin clock tower, while at its eastern end is the pastel-pink, 18th-century baroque Iglesia de Santa María de Mesa.


A handful of comfortable, low-key hotels keeps Zahara visitors happy, though many people visit on day trips from other nearby pueblos blancos, such as Grazalema or Ronda (both of which have excellent accommodation options).


Local restaurants line Calle San Juan. At the bottom of town, Al Lago is a Zahara favourite.

Drinking & Nightlife

Zahara is a tiny, quiet place, though the bars along Calle San Juan are good for a lazy coffee or quiet glass of wine.
