Iznajar on the Lake of Andalucia
Iznajar is ideally situated inland, known as the ‘Crossroads of Andalucia’, it lies just one hour from Malaga, Granada and Cordoba. It is set in the beautiful rolling hills and olive groves of the Subbetica Natural Park. This friendly village is located on the beautiful 32km Lake, the largest in Andalucia, and can boast its own beach.
Valdearanas Beach on the lake is where you can swim, rent pedalos and kayaks, and sail. The water is lovely to swim in and the bathing is safe.
Iznajar Village is unspoiled and traditional; a labyrinth of typical whitewashed Andalucían houses dotted around narrow lanes. The castle, perched at the top, dates from the 8th century and church from the 16th century, which can be visited along with several museums and exhibitions. There are breathtaking views over the lake.
The Fiestas are second to none. Semana Santa (Easter), San Isidro and the two Ferias annually are to name but a few. Each of Iznajar’s hamlets all have their own celebrations in addition, usually to celebrate their own individual patron saint. Many of the local fiesta last three or four days!
