Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- The second stop we had on our guided tour of Zafra were the beautiful squares it has, one large and one smaller, where all the atmosphere of the city meets.
The Plaza Grande is the largest and most modern of the porticoed squares in the city of Zafra. Many of its arcades are from the 15th century. It is reached through five streets and communicates through its northwest corner, through the Arquillo del Pan, with the Plaza Chica.
Houses with two and three floors of stately bearing look out on it and it continues to be a place of commercial activity; bars, hotels, bookstore, kiosks, shops. Its pedestrian zone is very frequented by Zafrenses in its many summer terraces
If you get to it through Sevilla street, the view is dominated by the Candelaria tower but the most interesting view of the square is the one you have of it entering from the Plaza Chica through the Arquillo del Pan under the watchful eye of "The Little Hope"Written 8 May 2023
- Just behind it's bigger and more popular sister - Plaza Grande.
It is a delight. We had fab lunch there in Bar Bendita and loved it.Written 30 May 2019
- Our tour of the guided tour of Zafra ended in this church, the only one we saw in the center of the city, it appears a bit neglected from the outside, there is a long restoration work still to be done on it
At present, the temple is a church whose main door faces Tetuán street, accessing it for visits through the door that faces Conde de la Corte street. Inside the temple, the fabulous main altarpiece, the Zurbarán altarpiece and the organ stand out.
The church was an old synagogue that the Dukes of Feria, the former owners of where today their Palace has become a Parador, converted into a church, due to its small dimensions
The primitive sacristy can still be accessed through a small door cut into the walls of the side chapel of the gospel and is divided into two floorsWritten 19 May 2023
- We were staying in the Hotel Adarve, which is almost attached to the Arco Del Cubo on the left hand side, so we walked through this area into the old town. Well worth a visit.Written 7 October 2017
- A good way to see Zafra is to pick up the leaflet from the Tourist Office. It is a walking route around the town with marked attractions along the way. This arch I think is the old entrance into the town which leads on to Plaza Chica. Note the footprint in the arch which was used as an old measurement.Written 12 December 2017
