We continue our tour of Córdoba in Zuheros, which is located in the southeast of the province. This town has preserved the charm of other times, with narrow and winding streets, white houses with ocher roofs, lots of small squares and the mountains, which act as a backdrop. It is located at the foot of a castle of Arab origin and in it we can find such wonderful corners as the church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios.

Located to the east of the province, Montoro was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1969. The town is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, which divides it into two neighborhoods. Undoubtedly, what is most surprising about this place is its scenic beauty, although we can also find some architectural elements of great value, such as the bridge, the church of San Bartolomé or the remains of the Castillo de la Mota.


Another beautiful town in Córdoba is Iznájar, which is located in the south of the province, surrounded by a reservoir that bears the same name.
