Cultural Visit

The Parador de Zafra, Palace of the Dukes of Feria, occupies a majestic castlewith elegant, spacious rooms. Construction on this residence for the dukes of Feria was begun in 1437. The value of the palace is evident in the spectacular façade. It is an ideal location for exploring the historic surroundings and sights in the area. You will be amazed by the magnificent interior, which still contains beautiful coffered ceilings, large chests, ironwork, banisters and other decorative elements from the former palace. Stately, spacious guest rooms, a swimming pool and a beautifully maintained garden round out the Parador's offerings.

Gates in the outside walls lead to the lovely city of Zafra. One of the most beautiful entrances is through Jerez Gate, where narrow Clavel Street will captivate you. Framed by an arch and decorated with tiles, small balconies bedecked with flowers overlook the street, creating the perfect picture postcard. Strolling through Grande and Chica (Big and Small) squares, the shops along Sevilla Street, the collegiate church, and amazing churches such as Candelaria are just some of the attractions in this town, which is also known as La Sevilla Chica (Little Seville).

Come discover this land of Templars and nobles, villages with simple, charming folk, rich in culture and learned in gastronomy.
