Córdoba Province - Los Pedroches Valley

Visitors will notice that the most characteristic element of the Los Pedroches landscape are the holm oak trees. The majority of these villages are small and sparsely populated who have fought to conserve their heritage and traditions. Some form part of the Ruta de los Castillos, including Belalcázar, with the Castillo de Sotomayor; Santa Eufemia, with the medieval fortress at Miramontes; and El Viso, with the Madroñiz fortress.
Food connisseurs can enjoy exquisite traditional recipes, made with game and famous jamon ibérico, such as that of Villanueva de Córdoba.
