Zahara de la Sierra, Cadiz Province, Andalucia, Spain

Zahara de la Sierra is perched on a mountain overlooking a man-made lake and a valley. The town was originally a Moorish outpost, and as it is set between Ronda and Seville, it was the ideal site for the Castle of Zahara de la Sierra to be built, the remains of which still exist. The Zahara-El Gastor Reservoir offers recreation in the form of fishing and picnicking and has an artificial beach.
