A walk through Zuheros’ labyrinth of steep streets, paths and little squares is most enticing. There are only a few streets, and they lead to the castle’s balcony and the miradores called La Villa, Las Escominillas and El Bailón, with fantastic views over the defile and countryside.

The surrounding areas are of great ecological interest, included in the Sierras Subbéticas Nature Park, most appropriate for all type of excursions. A climb to Cueva de los Murciélagos can hardly be missed. The outlook from the road, the natural mirador of La Atalaya and the platform just before the cave is astonishing: the village looks like an eagle’s nest before the infinite valley of the river Guadalquivir, lit by sudden flashes of its large white towns.

One of the mountain roads might be pointed out near Zuheros, leading from the village to the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de La Sierra, in the town of Cabra.
