Where to Go
Andalucia is known for the awe inspiring beauty of its cities and also the breath-taking countryside. Cortijo Las Salinas is situated perfectly to visit and explore the magic and beauty of the historic moorish cities of Granada, Cordoba and Jaén which are all within an easy day trip by car, Seville being slightly further.
The snow capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada can be seen as you drive towards Granada even as late as May. It is also possible to spend a day skiing there.
The local historic white washed villages are full of colourful people and scattered with many signs of the past. Locally is our provincial capital Jaén, the Baroque town of Priego de Cordoba, the picturesque village of Zuheros with its bat caves and challenging walks – there is so much to see and absorb.
The villages and small towns within easy reach of Las Salinas are testimony to this region’s turbulent past with their castles and towers retaining much of their unique character and atmosphere with many important archaeological finds still being found today.
