This grand 15th century castle, once the residence of the Dukes of Feria, is located in the Medieval quarter of Zafra.  Today, it serves as a 4-star hotel with beautiful ceilings, antique furniture, intricate ironwork and large, elegant guestrooms.  The exterior is equally impressive with a spectacular façade, nine Moorish towers, well maintained gardens and an outdoor swimming pool.  

Zafra is a captivating town located in southern Extremadura half way between Seville and Caceres and which is known locally as ‘Little Seville’ (La Sevilla Chica).   Its main feature is the castle, formerly a Moorish fortress, that now serves as the Parador of Zafra.  There is a main square ‘Plaza Grande‘ which is lined with magnificent arches where you will find many bars and cafés, and where one archway connects to ‘Plaza Chica‘, a smaller version of the larger square.  This fortified town has eight entrances of which Jerez Gate is by far the most attractive. It leads onto Clavel Street, a narrow thoroughfare bordered by decorative tiles and pretty flowers adorning overhanging balconies.   These and many more attractions make Zafra a place of great interest for any visitor.
