Local Days Out

Less than 15 minutes drive from El Molino is the small white-washed village of Iznajar which looks down over the 30-kilometer long Lake Iznajar. At the top pf the village lie the remains of an 8th century Moorish castle reached through a labyrinth of narrow streets and whitewashed houses. This is a real non-tourist village, with lots of opportunity for painting and sketching true Spanish character.

Lying 20 minutes from El Molino is the small town of Archidona with its 18th century octagonal plaza and its beautiful hilltop monastery.
