The old Muslim town retains a typical medina character of narrow streets twisting white buildings. Juster wander around.

While staying in the Parador we walked east of the new bridge to see the two older bridges to the east. We returned by walking through the lovely, clean and friendly neighborhood of La Ciudad.

In Spanish, “la ciudad” means “the city.” Or in this case, a quaint village of about 35,000. For the purposes of a TripAdvisor review, La Ciudad is ambiguous. TA has a designated attraction called “Old City” but with two bridges connecting the compact cityscape, what’s...More

Drama is what this part of Spain offers. Drama in the spectacular drop below our hotel room and those dark angular mountains and the fabulous vista entering the town. It's literally built on a ridge of the sierra with a gorge spanned by a eye-catching...More

There were 11 of us traveling as a family group. We simply explored on our own and had a wonderful experience. Perhaps, you can ask in town; try a local restaurant or hotel, once you get there?
