Discover the secrets of Cabra
Treat yourself to a trip to Cabra and discover a typical Andalusian town, where the blinding southern sun is reflected in a blanket of whitewashed houses and nature thrives.
In the heart of Andalucia, Cabra has managed to retain and appreciate its historical legacy, and offers visitors a magnificent example of military and religious architecture, all evidence of how important Cordoba's surrounding countryside has been throughout the history of the peninsula. Here you’ll find cheap trips to Cabra for you to discover it for yourself.
The defensive walls, silent witnesses to the town’s history, were recently rebuilt, and have protected the architecture of Cabra for centuries, with such treasures as Castillo de los Duques de Sessa, an Arab fortress that was later expanded by the Christians. Also worth a visit are the churches Parroquia de la Asunción y Ángeles, and Iglesia de San Juan de Dios. For a more modern attraction you can visit the Municipal Archaeological Museum and the Aguilar y Eslava Museum, both with extensive art collections from the area.
Book a package deal to Cabra and enjoy nature. In the surrounding areas you can go hiking in La Dehesa de Vargas, La Sima de Cabra or along the Bailon route, where you’ll be able to spot free-roaming local animals such as wild boars, vultures, eagles and badgers. Lovers of plants will certainly enjoy one of the best conserved areas in Andalusia.
You’ll have worked up an appetite after all that exercise, so don’t forget to try some of the local specialities, such as garrojos, and why not take home some homemade olive oil?
If you fancy a big city, Cordoba, a world heritage city, is just an hour’s drive away, and Malaga, an hour and a half.
Get ready to enjoy everything Cabra has to offer. You’re sure to have an unforgettable time.
