The Atlantic route
ITINERARY: Montemayor - Espejo - Zuheros - Cabra - Priego - Iznájar -Lucena.
This itinerary covers the Cordovan countryside there we come upon the medieval castles of Montemayor and Espejo, surrounded by their villages, symbols of lordly power; next is the castle of Lucena wit its Torre del Moral where Boabdil was imprisoned; then the ruins of the citadel of Cabra; the fortress at Priego with a handsome keep; or the castle at Iznájar, of Islamic origin looking outover the Genil from its privileged position.
This route, furthermore, is dotted with quite a few observation towers, specially in the neighbourhood of Cordova.
