When we arrived near the tourist office we wondered what the fuss about this town had been. It looked like many other Spanish towns. We wandered up to the castle which wasn’t very impressive. Then we went round the back of the church and were...More

Much smaller barrio than the ones in the big cities, so quiet but delightful. Not much choice of tapas bars or restaurants, but a charming detour.

This town is 80km from Granada and is worth a day trip. The Old Town is filled with wonderful architecture, flower filled parks and attractive churches.

Very quaint area with interesting shops. A must visit in Priego de Córdoba. Charming white washed houses and cobble stone streets.

This is a beautiful barrio with quaint, traditional homes, near the Castle. It is a lovely place to walk and enjoy the incredible views of olive orchards and mountains across the valley.

Priego is a small town and this is for sure the most beautiful part of the city. In the summer time, people compete with geraniums and other beautiful plants to decorate the outside of their homes. There are also many small stores where you can...More

Priego is a wonderful town to visit, with something for everyone. A great shopping street with plenty of local shops, a gothic style church, a castle, and the old barrio, complete with mirador, or viewpoint. This is built on the ramparts overlooking a fertile valley...More
