Zafra is a relatively small, partially walled town with narrow streets, a couple of small Plaza's, quite a large Plaza Grande in the middle & an old castle which is now a Parador hotel. An interesting stop-over for a night but no more unless your...More

oh just go, fantastic folk, lovely location, superb food if you like traditional Spanish fare. It's the main square in the town and everyone goes there in the evening.

The pretty palm-tree lined square is full of locals sitting, gossiping, playing ball games [the children, anyway] and drinking. Plentiful tapas bars, some of which offered free tapas with the drinks we ordered - no need for dinner! Lovely ambience.
