The oldest part of town is high up, limited by the gorge by the Adarve mirador. The narrow, winding streets of La Villa lead out from the square in front of the castle and must on no account be missed. Starting from here, the route is full of Baroque singularities: from the churches of La Aurora and San Francisco to the squares of San Pedro, Andalucía and La Constitución, where the modern layout begins along Río street which follows the course of a river with a spring at the end, and Carrera de las Monjas.

The scenery varies in the surrounding hilly areas. It is worth going to some delightful hamlets, such as Lagunillas, to the south, below the 1,570 mt. of La Tiñosa peak, or to El Esparragal to the north, with its picturesque neighbourhood of Bajondillo where the Medieval towers of Barcas, Cañuelo, Torre Alta and El Esparragal can be seen.
