The House of Zayas
Originally a XVI Century mansion, and now the Town Hall.
The House Zayas is a former palace belonging to the family of the same name. When the last lady of the dynasty died childless, the property passed to a foundation. In the 1990s, the Town Council started restoration and it became their headquarters. Now, residents and visitors can enjoy this building and accompanying gardens.
The romantic garden is located in the Casa Zayas. It is open to anyone who wants to enjoy its beauty, its quiet shadows and the music of the water.
‘Aljibe’: Old water reservoir at the church square
In the square of the church remains one of the many wells that once supplied water to the residents of our town.
XVI Century Church
The Church of San Juan Bautista is a true work of art. Worth seeing are the high altar, the wood coffered ceiling, and in the square, the pebble mosaic recently rescued from under the asphalt covering.
To enjoy a picnic without going too far, you can go up to Razuela park at the foot of Zahor mountain. In this small natural setting, located in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park you can enjoy a magnificent view of the entire Valley Lecrín, while cooking in one of the barbecues. It also has a sports court and a football field.
In the upper area of the town there are some caves that are inhabited. They are private, but worth visiting for their setting and enjoy the river views and … with any luck be invited in.
